His birthday party in Dublin for his 60th was one of the most hyped-up events of the year so you can only imagine what his wedding is going to be like.

Shane MacGowan and his long-term partner, Victoria Mary Clarke will finally marry each other after a 11-year long engagement.

The couple have been together for 30 years and The Pogues frontman popped the question in 2007.

They have been madly in love since the mid-80s and the bride-to-be finally revealed the news to The Sunday Independent.

She said that Johnny Depp is going to be a guitarist at the wedding so you can already picture how big of a day out it's going to be.

The pair had originally planned to keep the wedding a secret entirely but it was always going to be hard to do so.

“Shane and I are both introverts and we decided that the only solution was to just elope together to someplace that we know nobody and nobody knows us, and keep it a secret.

“But I have discovered something about weddings that I had not realised. People really, really want to show that they love the people that they care about.

“So, much as we might have liked our wedding to be a non-event, and because we have found it impossible to keep it a total secret, a few of our friends and family have elected to make it a tiny but beautiful thing.”
