Going to mount our 50" LED TV on the wall on the chimney breast (chimney capped, fireplace not in use!!) which is brick which has been skimmed over, plan is to use concrete sleeve anchors.
I was planning on using either the 8 X 65mm M8 or the 10 X 75mm M8 Easifix ones from Screwfix, any suggestions on which to choose? Or would a different size suit better?

What is the weight if the tv? Size is irrelevant, weight isn't.

Always better to over spec on things like this. Go for 10mm fixings at least 4 but no harm in using more if bracket allows.

Drill holes slightly downwards, this prevents fixings pulling out.

I'd go for the 10mm ones if I was fitting for a customer.
