Ok guys, a further update and request for your help / advice.
Whilst looking at the link for replacement thermostats that was kindly provided in the first reply to my initial post, I noticed that the thermostats for my Creda T512VW tumble dryer are also used in the Hotpoint TL61N dryer.
I have the exact same model waiting to be picked up to go to the council refuse centre.
I've tested the Two thermostats and they're both good, visually they do not appear to be identical to the ones on the Creda in that One is Black in colour and the other White / Cream, unlike the Creda in which both thermostats are White, also the spade connectors are bent at 90 degrees upward as opposed to being flat like the ones fitted to the Creda dryer.
The wiring to them was also slightly different in that the White / Cream thermostat had Two Orange wires connected to it exactly like the Creda dryer, but the Black thermostat had Two Blue wires connected, unlike the Creda which had Blue on one side and Black and Brown together on the other side.
I hope you can make sense of all that, I've tried to explain it as simply as possible.
The question is guys, would it be safe / ok to fit the Two good thermostats from the condemned Hotpoint to the Creda dryer ?.
Thank you in advance.
