Shane MacGowan was admitted to hospital last week after breaking his pelvis attempting “a complicated dance move”.

The Pogues frontman’s partner Victoria Mary Clarke tweeted last week: “Just to say thanks to everyone who sent messages to Shane MacGowan he is grateful! Cranky, but recovering! Fell and broke his pelvis”.

Quizzed further, she added that the injury had been dancing-related, but said later on Facebook that he was “feeling a whole lot better already”.
