The Pogues singer Shane MacGowan has been rushed to hospital, his wife revealed today.
Victoria May Clarke shared a picture of the 64-year-old Fairytale of New York singer in a heartbreaking update.
She tweeted: “Please send prayers and healing vibes to @ShaneMacGowan in hospital again and really hoping to get out asap!! Thank you.”
Victoria, 56, did not say what is wrong with the star, who has faced health problems in recent years.
In 2016, he broke his pelvis during a fall and later broke his knee and damaged ligaments in another accident, The Sun reported.
He was last seen in November, when he used a wheelchair to attend an exhibition of his own art.
Fans quickly obliged after Victoria’s appeals for prayers today, with one writing: “God bless ya Shane absolute legend here’s hoping for a speedy recovery mate.”
Another replied: “Sending love, positivity and prayers for a beautiful man.”
Victoria and Shane, who have been together for over 35 years, finally married in Denmark in 2018.
The singer rose to fame as a founding member of punk band The Pogues, who are perhaps still best-known today for Christmas song Fairytale of New York.
The track is written by The Pogues’ Jem Finer and sung by Shane with British singer Kirsty MacColl.
It has sold close to 1.5 million copies and in the UK it is the most-played Christmas song of the 21st century.
