I installed GooManager but when I selected the Install OpenRecoveryScript I got a message saying "No recoveries were found for your device".
I still have the option of installing TWRP using another method but this made me slightly nervous. I don't mind risking messing up my tablet but messing up my phone and taking days to fix it would not be good.
My question is, has anyone else installed TWRP on a UK 3 S4? Assuming it worked, please can you tell me the file name so I know I'm using the right binary?
I presume you are rooted already, because to use a custom recovery you need to be. If not then read (and read again) Ironass' excellent guide here :

Then install Philz recovery, which is excellent. Use Ironass' guide to that here :
