I was only supposed to remove bottom 2 rows of tiles but i found that the skimmed plaster has debonded from the wall. could i just prime and use a skim of rapid over the top....then tile when dry? or do i get a plasterer in?

treat as bonding and not tile it I believe. If tile weight is ok I'd say replaster and come back when dry to tile.
normally just over board but obviously you can't looking at picks.

If you're in a rush to get the shower back perhaps try knock a little bit back see where it ends and see if you get enough space to overboard with thin plasterboard or whatever.

Trying to get a plasterer in is a nightmare. I'm now looking at Youtube on how to plaster a wall. The things we do to get the job done!
 
Q

Qwerty

Hack off to brick/ block and then board it to fit flush with the existing walls...... like this I did a couple of weeks ago........
