The UK is definitely ccTLD positive (more ccTLD domains than gTLD domains registered in the market). The ratio is probably about 2.5:1 in favour of .uk. Get the .com as well but make sure it redirects to the .co.uk domain name. Ditto for the .co domain. The .co ccTLD is mainly a US domainer phenomenon but in the last web survey of .co websites I ran, the percentage of websites redirecting to the owner's primary website in a TLD outside of .co was actually higher than that of the percentage of developed .co websites. Registering the .co is probably cheaper than a UDRP action.
