Just scrape it back and undercoat it, the oily mark will come through emulsion, I am guessing a gas cooker?

Hi, no not greesey marks just paint peeling I guess due to the steem coming from boiling veg etc, I was thiking of using a proper kitchen/bathroom paint on ceiling but wondered if i needed a specil undercoat on top of plaster beforehand

The plaster should have had a top coat. 70/40 water. a vynal matt is more than enough i have used it for years and never had any problems even in my bathroom which gets really steamy when the shower is on. Proper prep should mean a good life expectancy.
