Bathroom Wooden panelling and tiles

I have wooden panelling right around my bathroom, from the skirting to around 1.2m in height. Above this is lining paper.

Above the bath/shower is I have a curtain rail thing, with two shower curtains. I want to tile the area behind the shower and to the side of the bath.

Could I just tile above the existing panelling, and dispense with the shower curtain, or will I have to remove all the wood from the side and back of the bath and replace the whole area with tiles?

Or is there another solution I am not thinking of?

Any help/advice is much appreciated.
