Shane MacGowan from The Pogues has been rushed to hospital.

His wife, Victoria May Clarke, broke the news on Twitter alongside a photo of the 64-year-old - who has been using a wheelchair since breaking his pelvis in 2015.

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

While MacGowan was smiling in the picture, his wife later told the Irish Mirror that he is finding his time in hospital "frustrating" and they are hoping that since he was admitted on Friday last week he will be discharged sometime this week.

It is not yet known why the star is receiving medical care.

The singer has been open about his battle with addiction and shared that following decades of alcohol and drug abuse he had to get a full set of teeth implants in 2015.
