Didn’t you read the responses?
Cable on top of insulation.
Plasterboard on top of cables.
PS. No need for aluminium channel, in fact that will retain heat rather than let it dissipate.

Aluminium is a great conductor of heat and is a common material for heatsinks, so I think it would sink the heat.
It wouldn't provide much in the way of mechanical protection though, if that was the thinking behind it.
Hi T and W,
I did them, but must of missed the actual answer.

I was thinking about galvanised cable protection (Wickes) between the insulation and the cable, I think I'll use it anyway, it's cheap.
Thanks all, I'll carry on.

It is important even if you don't think it is.
Hi E,
I don't give it much thought!
I think my first book was 1956 ladybird book of birds' and I don't think I've read 10 in my life including school. I was thrown out of shakespeare class for laughing when I had to read, and came across 'methinks' and couldn't carry on. I can read ok, but only read 'how to do' pages. I can do a fair bit:)
I think I write how I speak so "must've" is said "must of"
I have a kind of dyslexia which has a habit of leaving gaps in what I read
