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.”

Trump security advisor goes off on Antifa rant to duck grilling on president’s ‘vicious dogs’ protester threat
Appearing on CNN's "State of the Union" with Jake Tapper, White House National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien ducked directly defending the president's Saturday threat to use "vicious dogs and ominous weapons" of Washington D.C. protesters, by instead talking about supposed Antifa activity during the George Floyd protests.
After reading the president's tweet, host Tapper pressed, "Do you think messages like that are helping to unite the country and calm fears?”
With O'Brien noting, "[Trump] was trying to de-escalate. He didn’t want violence, he’s trying to stop the violence that we saw that took place overnight," he then went on to drag in reports being pushed by Donald Trump's administration that Antifa -- which he mentioned frequently during the entire interview -- had taken over the protests.
