Getting British Gas Central Heating to link with Hive app

I've had a British Gas boiler for a few years - BG branded wifi hub, WR1 receiver, Drayton Digistat+3 thermostat. All working nicely with the Hive app on my mobile

Last week the wifi hub died. I ordered a replacement from Hive, got it up and running, added to the Hive app - but now the central heating has disappeared from the Hive app

Hive says they can't help to pair the BG stuff with the new hub - ask British Gas. Guess what - BG says they can't help, talk to Hive

Anyone have any idea how to get a Drayton Digistat+3 or a WR1 to pair with the latest Hive hub?

I've put the hub into pairing mode, the WR1 into learning mode, the thermostat into learning mode - no luck

Why is this so difficult!!
