The Pogues' Shane MacGowan appeals for dentist to fix his teeth so he can start film career
The Pogues' Shane MacGowan is searching for a dentist who can fix his infamously bad teeth so he can start a Hollywood film career.

MacGowan's hedonistic lifestyle caused his teeth to rot and fall out and, although he had dentures fitted in 2009, he no longer wears them. Now, however, his girlfriend Victoria Mary Clarke has launched an appeal on Twitter for a dentist to fix his gnashers and also promised that the frontman would front an advertising campaign in exchange for the work.

"Shane is keen to find a dentist, so he can start in Hollywood film," she wrote. "Pogues/Shane fans who are great dentists please apply!" She later added: "Shane promises to do advertising campaign for the winning dentist!!!"

The Pogues' official Twitter account have also backed the search, writing: "ALERT! Job offer of lifetime. Any Pogues/Shane Mac fans who are great dentists please tweet @Victoriamary to work on the great man himself!"

MacGowan, who claimed in November last year that he once went naked for a photoshoot with Babyshambles singer Pete Doherty and also drank actor Johnny Depp under the table, has claimed before that fans often come up to him thinking he's been dead a long time. "'I thought you were dead', I always get that," he said. "'How come you're not dead?'"

The Pogues released the live album and DVD 'Pogues In Paris: 30th Anniversary Concert At The Olympia', which features two shows in the French capital, in November 2012. Their last studio album, 'Pogue Mahone', was released in 1996.
