FAIRYTALE of New York legend Shane MacGowan’s wife has issued a new health update – and revealed her emotional Christmas wish.
Victoria Mary Clarke told how she’s hoping to get the Pogues legend home from hospital – where he’s been battling a dangerous brain condition – for the festive season.
Posting a new snap of the 65-year-old rocker, Victoria Mary said the star is “feeling much better today”.
MacGowan has been treated for months for viral encephalitis – a serious condition which leads to brain swelling – and hospitalised several times since his diagnosis.
In a social media post earlier this week, Victoria Mary sent “love and prayers to everyone who is struggling right now”.
But issuing a fresh update, she shared a picture of Shane grinning as he used a breathing apparatus in his hospital bed.
She said: “Shane is feeling much better today! I am so grateful to everyone who is willing him to get home for the Christmas!”
Victioria previously revealed her gratitude for Shane’s celeb pals visiting him in hospital during his health battle.
She said: “I just wanted to say a massive thanks to everyone who has been messaging me and @ShaneMacGowan and thank you @spiderstacy and Terry Woods for coming to visit him.
“Love and prayers for everyone who is struggling right now. Hang in there!”
