There's a bulletin released on the issue (tsb3160),if your car is in the affected range it may need a software update and/or replacing the wiring connectors to the EGT sensors, you may need to contact a dealer to find out more.

Have you any idea if I will lose my stage 2 remap which I had done around 2 years ago (had no problems until now) if I have the software update done?

I'm no tuner but It involves an SPS of the ECM ,so yes it will install a standard map.

I've rang the dealer and my car doesn't need an update so thats the remap worry over, now just to source the problem im having with my car, it hasn't been the same since i got it back from having a service done

I'd have to question that,it won't show as an outstanding update as i was only used upon customer complaint for the issue you're having,but you probably won't want to lose your map anyway

Garage that changed my sensors are blaming the remap and told me to take car back to where I had it done 2 year ago, I've rang the place where l had the remap done and they are saying it sounds like either a water pump failure or thermostat, nothing to do with remap, basically spent nearly £300 on sensors being replaced that didn't need replacing

Yep you're unlikely to get any agreement between two garages,
The usual symptoms are loss of power and SVS lamp on. Message "turn off engine, engine overheated" shown in the instrument panel, coolant temperature gauge moves into red, and engine stalls in idle,but this is a false warning causing the car to stall out.

You really need proper diagnostics and the ability to SPS if required, so preferably a specialist needs to see it,
one thing you could consider is getting the pigtail connectors changed,this is supposed to be done if a sensor has been judged faulty and may be a cheaper option to try before a software update,
this is the pigtail
