I currrently have a 20 year old extractor fan, a big bulky noisy thing called 'Harmony' made by Greenwood Airvac, sitting in Zone 2 above the bath at the taps end... It comes on with the light switch, there is no FCU for it.
So i just got a Wickes Bath/Shower extractor fan 240v. In the instructions it says I must install an FCU outside the bathroom, and connect it to that. This basically means i have to cut through 4m of plasterboard walls :( Do i really have to install an FCU for the replacement of an old extractor that didn't have one? Just want to know what to expect from the electrician.

Thanks for any help!!

The FCU instruction is just for when you are conecting to a ring final circuit. You'll be OK to connect it up as is.

A 230v fan is allowed in zone 2 but must have protection of at least IPx4.
