Sorry got busy yesterday rebuilding my nephews laptop. Its the larger group on the right.
Then that circuit is not RCD protected and you cannot use that circuit to bring mains electricity into your bathroom.

This is the point where you need to stop attempting to do this yourself.
An electrician is needed to make some safety changes to your consumer unit.
Probably best to have him/her to the ehole job.

Thanks for your advice. Will contact a pro and get that changed to an RCD or whatever is needed.

You could use a fused RCD FCU to protect just the towel rate...there was something in batemans rcd about it, single point, less than 20 amps blah blah blah.. I would derate the fuse in the FCU to 3 amps from the 13amp supplied and if that blows go to 5amp.
