Victoria Mary Clarke has shared some good news after Shane MacGowan was hospitalised earlier this month.

The singer was brought to hospital due to an infection and Victoria had asked her followers for their prayers at the time.

Now, she has revealed that Shane will be home for Christmas.

She tweeted a picture of The Pogues’ frontman writing: “Shane is home and we are going to watch the football!

“Thank you everyone who has been messaging and blessings to everyone who has a loved one in hospital and who is in hospital themselves and blessings to the doctors and nurses!”

Aw, we’re just delighted!

Of course, the first thing on his agenda was to watch the World Cup semi-final between France and Morocco as soon as he got home.

He looked toasty in a blanket but also shielded his eyes from the bright winter sun with a pair of sunglasses.

Victoria told The Sunday Independent about his hospitalisation saying that she noticed his eye getting “red and closed over”.

“The hospital explained to me that shingles can go into your brain and that’s what happened to Shane so now they want to keep him in on a drip for two weeks. I was absolutely terrified. You don’t know what is going to happen, do you? You just don’t know,” she told the publication.

However, he is home and ready to celebrate Christmas with his family.
