These would do you amazon.co.uk/Asc…031 There are also cool white versions listed on the same page.

As long as the bulb is rated to 240V then you will be OK. The Wattage of the LED bulb will not be an issue to the holder - but will govern how bright your room is!
Mains voltage. Watts are irrelevent, they'll be determined by the brightness you want.

Although bear in mind LEDs can be more directional than halogens, so the sort of surface mounted LEDs without diffuser like Van linked to would broadcast more light outwards and less light upwards - which may not be the best choice for a recessed ceiling fitting assuming the bulbs are mounted upside down.
You need a g9 led bulb, they differ in brightness and colour of the light emitted. Main thing is to buy a bulb that fits the holder with the cover on.

Beware that if the bulb gets warm then there's a good chance it will die in a year or two. Overheating due to faulty voltage regulation is the main reason for led bulb failure. The driver just ends up dying.
Thanks guys . Will try
