'Drunk' BBC radio DJ pulled from the air - listen

By
BBC Radio Stoke DJ Paula White was pulled from the air after appearing to be drunk on her last day.

White insisted that she was "not drunk" but had "had a couple of drinks" to celebrate her final afternoon weekday show at the station.


She began the show at 1pm on Friday (May 10), but was mysteriously replaced just half an hour into the slot after listeners presumed she was drunk, Radio Fail reports (via Radio Today).

White told listeners that she planned to "P-A-R-T-Y" and play any song she wanted to during the show, before her colleague announced that she was "not feeling well" and had gone home.

"I don't care. Whatever you want to hear this afternoon, it's like you can hear it," she told listeners. She then talked at length about how people play her show to their dogs to help them sleep.

A BBC spokesperson said: "Paula White was unable to continue on-air yesterday as she was under par.

"Fortunately Den Siegertsz was on hand to take over the show and listeners were able to enjoy the usual lively mix of chat and local news.

"We can confirm that this was Paula's last show in the afternoon weekday slot on BBC Radio Stoke."
