I'd just like ones that were same type as the original if I'm honest but in stainless steel, as I dont want to be using allen keys for some things and the other stuff for others. (sorry don't know the names for tools lol...)

What length of thread are they, anyone know off the top of there head?

Don't have a screwfix around here sadly :(

I'm sure I read a thread where someone changed theres a few months ago just cant find it.

Thinking these look similar to orginal just not sure on length

Or these option 2 :)

Thanks for your help guys, I was trying to take one off today an the head has snapped off an the thread is still inside, my dad tells me I need to drill it out. Not sure what I will do yet :( the rest are pretty rusted on.

I used that second seller that you list from eBay when I bought some bolts to hold down my stainless steel radiator panel. Not saying they're any better than the first seller, and I haven't had them in that long, but they did the job. The ones that I got in that particular instance were M6 x 12.
