Just thinking about connecting a dual fuel towel rail.

Thought crossed my mind to use a relay and a feed from the heating controller to prevent the electrical element being powered when the heating was on. Controller/boiler is fed from a 240 supply spurred from a lighting circuit, element would be fed from a ring final.

Is it against the rules? Is it just overkill?

It is possible to get thermostatically controlled elements for towel rails. You would need to check the temperature ranges, but could presumably set the thermostat to avoid electrical heating when the boiler is keeping the radiator warmer.
