PICS: Shane MacGowan rushed to hospital after injuring himself during "complicated dance move"
Shane MacGowan was rushed to hospital after breaking his pelvis in a fall.
The legendary Pogues frontman was seen by doctors in A&E on Wednesday evening and is reportedly recovering in hospital with his partner Victoria Mary Clarke alongside him.
The 57-year-old singer-songwriter is as "cranky" as ever, but will hopefully be back up and about soon enough.
Victoria Mary Clarke took to social media to explain what had happened and thank everyone who had been in touch, informing one fan that a "complicated dance move" was to blame for the broken pelvis.
We've all been there Shane, get well soon.
