My house has a 2 storey extension built at the rear with a flat roof -I want to convert to pitch roof. I have planning/ building reg permission - I am worried about the extra weight - am I just being paranoid or will an extension take the extra weight?

No need to worry, the roof trusses are design to rest the weight on the wallplate which is on top of the wall and no extra weight is not being push anywhere else, so stop worrying !
