The Pogues star Shane MacGowan is seeking professional help to replace his rotten teeth in a bid to embark on a Hollywood film career.

The singer's partner Victoria Mary Clarke took to her page over the weekend (11-12May13) to appeal for a dentist to get in touch to help improve MACGowan's smile - and she promised the star would be willing to appear in free publicity following any treatment.

In a series of posts, she writes, "Shane is keen to find a dentist, so he can star in Hollywood film and Pogues/Shane fans who are great dentists please apply!

"Shane promises to do advertising campaign for the winning dentist!!!"

MACGowan's wild lifestyle has caused his teeth to fall out over the years - he had the last two removed and dentures fitted in 2009, but has since stopped wearing them.
