Johnny Depp to play guitar at Shane MacGowan’s wedding on Monday

HOLLYWOOD actor Johnny Depp is to play guitar at Shane MacGowan’s wedding on Monday.

The Pogues frontman, 60, is set to wed long-term partner Victoria Mary Clarke in what was initially intended as a secret wedding.

However Clarke, 52, has told the Irish Independent she was unable to keep the nuptials a total secret, adding, “a few of our friends and family have elected to make it a tiny but beautiful thing”.

And she also revealed Depp, a close friend of the London-born singer, will perform at the event.

“Johnny Depp is going to be the wedding guitarist,” she told the paper.

The Irish Sun reports that the low-key ceremony will take place in Copenhagen tomorrow.
