But as all posters have said .. it's a very personal thing ... I am 6' 3" .. 100kg, and have narrow sit bones and a small ass .... Cannot cope with Brookes B17's or the SPA version ... nothing to do with the saddle, just my physiology.
I have a Decathlon near me but can't see that one. Several Selle Italia models listed at various prices starting from £25.

I just bought the selle Italia flx gel flow from Decathlon, which according to dawes, was the original saddle on on my bike
They also had the selle Italia discovery, which is the same price but a bit slimmer. If I don't get on with the one I bought I'll exchange it for this one.
Thanks everyone for your advice.
