A BBC radio host who admitted to having a few drinks was pulled off the air during her final show on Friday after she began slurring her words and had trouble working the broadcast equipment.
“For the last time on lunchtime let’s ssssssssssay yooou pick the music, oh yeah,” Paula White said at the beginning of her 1 p.m. show. “It’s a P-A-R-T-Y because I ssssaid sooooo.”
“I’m not drunk, I’ve had a couple of drinks, I’m not drunk,” she later giggled. “I’m sad.”
As the show continued, White began to have trouble with the broadcast equipment.
“It’s my last day and nothing’s working!” she exclaimed. “Why is nothing working? Ohhhhhh!”
After about 30 minutes of the three hour show, DJ Dan Siegertsz announced that he was taking over for White.
“Paula is not feeling well with it being her last afternoon show and has gone home,” he explained.
“Paula White was unable to continue on-air yesterday as she was under par,” a spokesperson for BBC told Radio Today. “Fortunately Denholm Siergertz was on hand to take over the show and listeners were able to enjoy the usual lively mix of chat and local news.”

Don Lemon flabbergasted by brazen lying by Republican Kris Kobach: ‘He lied to your face’
CNN anchors Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo had a heart-to-heart conversation about racism in America during the handoff between their shows on Tuesday.
"What’s going on with you? I saw you in the makeup room. Your energy is off. You seem down. Is this getting to you, what happened today? With what the president tweeted and how people are reacting?" Lemon asked his colleague.
"Is it getting to me? It hits close to home, to be honest. My grandparents were afraid of people like Trump. Ironically, they grew up very close to one another," Cuomo answered, recounting his family's story of seeking acceptance in America. "It hits close to home."
‘You have to think about it?’ Kris Kobach goes down in epic flames when CNN’s Cuomo asks if he’d vote for a racist
Kris Kobach went down in flames going up against CNN host Chris Cuomo on Tuesday, as the Kansas Republican attempted to "explain" what President Donald Trump "really said" about the four congresswomen of color he attacked Sunday.
Cuomo read Trump's quotes aloud asking if they were racist.
"Now you're editorializing it," Kobach said. "The problem with Twitter, it's 140 characters and since it's so vague--"
As a point of fact, Trump used three tweets to say what he said about the women, not editing it down to 280 characters.
"He said the words," Cuomo fact-checked.
Texas Republican women think Trump wasn’t being racist — because ‘he didn’t say a color’
On Tuesday, CNN reporter Randi Kaye interviewed a group of eight Texas GOP women about President Donald Trump's racist attacks on four black and brown congresswomen who have criticized him. And they broadly refused to accept that his behavior was racist.
"How many of you don’t think what the president said was racist, raise your hand?" said Kaye, continuing in a voiceover, "These eight Republican women from Dallas don't see anything wrong with President Trump telling four Democratic Congress to go back to where they came from.
"He was saying if they hate America so much because what we’re seeing out of them and hearing out of them, they hate America," said one woman. "If it’s so bad, there's a lot of places they can go."
