I live in UK but I use USA domain registration services and web hosting companies as they are a lot cheaper and also reliable.
If you decide to go for UK hosting account, try following as I host first 2 sites with them.
It really kind of depends on your website, it's usage and the technology you are using on it.
It is good to ask around fellow web developers you know and also search for reviews about hosting companies you are considering using on google before you decide to trust them with your website, they really need to have proven reliability and good support.
I think I've seen some positive review for unitedhosting.co.uk in the past. But I do not understand why are you "desperate" if there are some uk search engines or web service and web design magazines that offer listings of web hosts.
£5 per month ! £60 a year ! CAP LIMITS !!!
If you want an unlimited bandwidth , unlimited space and unlimited emails for less than £5 a month, talk to me...
If you want dedicated hosting, you will find that theirs a huge price leap.
Forgot to mention, the fees also cover domain name too and none of this credit card bull where your host just takes annual fees, you get the option to renew yourself and if you do not want hosting after that expiry date, you do not renew...

Reason: additional guff.
Forget fasthosts.co.uk as they will take a payment regardless of your wishes.
All I can say about them is if you only intend on having 12 months with them, ensure that once you have paid them for 12 months and before your renewal, go to your bank, declare your debit / credit card as lost / stolen and they issue you a new card which will have a different issue number than the one in the site you just coughed up for and this prevents them from taking a payment when you do not want to continue with them.
You will find that they pester you and try to take payments regardless of your stated wishes.
TBH I am glad I got them out my hair, as a provider, one word... sh1t.
Yes, I know I'm about as subtle as being hit by a bus..(\\.\ Aug08) Yep... I say it like I see it, even if it is like a baseball bat in the nutz...
