I've been stripping wallpaper and removed some blown bits of plaster. What would be the best plaster to fill this? Would gyproc easy-fill be suitable?

Better using some multi-finish plaster. Having said that if it’s only a few mm deep that’s needing patched up and you’re not good at plastering then easifill is an option as you can sand away any bumps and imperfections.

Whatever you decide to use damp down the surface before filling, otherwise the filler/plaster can shrink and crack due to the "dry" substrate sucking the moisture out of the filler/plaster.
