    I don't think builders have even heard of the terms 'Straight', 'Level', 'Plumb' or 'Right Angle' :rolleyes:

    Did you chase the edges of the bath into the plaster? That might gain, say, 10mm or more. Once the tiles are fixed that will lose about another 6 - 8 mm, so your gap is down to a few millimetres.
    Mind the gap behind the taps isnt reduced so you jam your fingers when turning them.

    Otherwise, as Nige F says, fix a board or batten in the gap, and tile over it.
