    I've removed some tiles. Is it okay to re-tile onto plasterboard, without the skim on top? Any tips on what I should be doing? Photo attached.

    Looks like Paramount board , which is basically 2 faces of Plasterboard filled with an Egg box type centre , includes 38mm square top & bottom rail

    unsure re Tiling right on top ... but following though


    Cheers

    If its solid with no movement then you can tile directly onto that, make sure its primed with a tiling primer such as mapei primer G.
