The Pogues Shane MacGowan rushed to hospital as wife begs send prayers

The Pogues' Shane MacGowan has been rushed to hospital, as his wife Victoria has begged his fans to "send prayers".

The 64 year old Irish singer, best known for Christmas classic Fairytale of New York, has suffered a number of health issues over the past few years.

It is not known what he is currently in hospital for at the moment, but he's said to be "frustrated" at having to remain in there.

His partner of 35 years, Victoria Mary Clarke, 56, took to Twitter to share a sweet snap of the wheelchair-bound singer smiling as she informed fans he was in hospital.

She wrote: "Please send prayers and healing vibes to @ShaneMacGowan in hospital again and really hoping to get out asap!! Thank you."

Well-wishers rushed to voice their hopes for a speedy recovery for Shane, with one writing: "Not at Christmas, the man is the sound of Christmas… I hope he recovers swiftly and not too much discomfort."

Another tweeted: "Awh Shane! Bless him. Sending so much love his way. Hope he's back home in time for Christmas."

Another person commented: "At least he's still smiling. Wishing this legend a speedy recovery."

A fourth wrote: "Sending all love and positive vibes your way. Hope things turn out okay soon. I’ll keep him in my prayers."

Shane has been in a wheelchair since 2015 after breaking his pelvis, and he's suffered ailing health over the past few years, after enjoying a lifestyle of hard partying.

Victoria told the Irish Mirror that Shane was "frustrated" having been in the hospital since last Friday.

She said: "I’m definitely hoping he gets out this week. He’s a bit frustrated, I think. He finds it very frustrating… he wants to get out."

Shane and Victoria have been together for 35 years and married in 2018 at Copenhagen City Hall in Denmark, in a wedding that was attended by their close friend, actor Johnny Depp.

Since his successful career with The Pogues, who are responsible for the iconic Christmas hit Fairytale of New York, Shane has become an accomplished artist, and his works were set to sell for up to £32,000 at a recent exhibition.

It was held at the Andipa art gallery in London, where Shane was seen vaping and drinking what appeared to be a glass of bubbly, although he's done several stints of being sober over the years.

British supermodel Kate Moss also joined him and Victoria Mary at the event, as she was seen posing alongside them, looking her usual edgy self in a black dress and plenty of gold necklaces, whilst Victoria looked like a Grecian goddess in a flowing metallic gown that was cinched in at the waist.
