“I just wanted to thank everyone who is sending love and prayers for ⁦@ShaneMacGowan we really appreciate it and bless all of you and anyone anywhere who is having health challenges! @poguesofficial,” she wrote on social media.

She added a picture of herself and Shane from his hospital bed.

She previously told the Sunday Mirror: “He is still in hospital but he is doing well and being looked after. I didn’t want to worry people. He is out of the ICU and doing well.”

Shane has been receiving treatment in a Dublin hospital since late June as his health battle continues, according to reports.

The singer requires a wheelchair as well as a full-time carer after he broke his pelvis in 2016 before going on to break his knee and tearing his ligaments in 2020.
