Revealed: Why The Pogues' Shane MacGowan will be on Christmas Corrie

A few weeks ago we reported that Shane MacGowan, lead singer with The Pogues, had been spotted filming on the Coronation Street set.

And now we can finally reveal why - it's part of ITV's annual charity Text Santa.

This year, Coronation Street cast members will perform a version of 'Fairytale in Weatherfield' accompanied by Shane MacGowan.

I bet it won't have great lyrics like our version...

So there you have it. While it'll be well worth watching, I'm stil a bit disappointed that Shane's not being brought in to Corrie as Deirdre's new man.

Text Santa raises funds for Age UK, Barnardo's, BeatBullying, British Heart Foundation, CLIC Sargeant and Help the Hospices.
