    The ‘solution’ partially depends on what your planning as a final wall finish ?

    More details required

    The plan was to tile the wall

    Before tiling, the wall needs stripping of all loose material, plaster, paint, cement render (?) and ideally, deep holes filled then the wall/s skimmed over

    You want a nice, flat surface to tile on to get best results, especially if your diy tiling this

    The larger the tile you use, also need s the wall to be super flat

    Looks worse than it is, all standard stuff and not a nightmare really

    Often when removing tiles, you loose a lot more plaster and expose the brick work

    Just needs several stages of prep before tiling. Are you planning on doing all the work yourself or getting in any trades ?
