THE icing on the cake for Shane MacGowan's early 50th birthday party was set to be a singsong from Kate Moss - but she didn't turn up.

We can reveal that Kate, 33, missed her flight from New York to the do at the Boogaloo in North London.

She was especially cheesed off as she had a surprise in store for guests who included the Arctic Monkeys' Alex Turner and Matt Helders, The View, Madness and Kevin Rowland.

A mate of Kate's tells us: "She was set to sing Happy Birthday Marilyn Monroe-style. A blonde wig had even been ordered."

Kate helped organise Shane's party - whose birthday falls on Christmas Day - with his other half Victoria Clarke. They agreed not to invite her ex Pete Doherty - despite him being Shane's pal.

Still, the Pogues' frontman, below, didn't let the no shows dent his spirits.

We're told: "He was drinking pints of what looked like vodka and any beers people left around."

A spokesman for Kate had no comment.
