    Apparently you can dot and dab with tile adhesive. But I'd put a few screws through into the wall to be safe.

    Thanks for the replies
    One side is thermelite one side is stud wall
    I will put some batons on the wall to be safe.
    I will use an off cut and try dot & dabbing it to
    see what happens.
