Anyone know if I have to abide by any regulations for the type of door to be used on a boiler cupboard? Want to replace this ugly door with a spare Victorian pine door we have but not sure if that's actually allowed.

The frame doesn't look to be a fire rated one, there are no intumescent strips let into it or grooves for them (for that matter there appear to be none in the door edge, either). If the door is a 35mm thick one (which looks likely) then it probably isn't a fire-rated door either (you can get 35mm fire doors, but they are not all that common). In which case you'll be able to replace the door with one of your choice.

Doesn’t need to be a fire door? Cupboard does not even need to have a door .

With a modern Worcester boiler like that you can probably use whatever door you like.

The definitive answer lies in the installation manual for the boiler. It will give you chapter and verse on clearances, cupboard (compartment) volumes, ventilation etc.

If you don't have the manual, download it from here: https://www.freeboilermanuals.com/
