Does the fridge have a Piezo spark or an electrical spark?
If you have a piezo sparker you could ensure the sparker and the wires attached are all connected and not damaged. If they are, the problem could be the failure of the complete piezo module. There is no battery that can be swapped out and the entire piezo module may need replacing.
If you have an electric sparker, check the sparker and the wires attached are all connected and not damaged. If they are, the problem could be no or too low a voltage from the leisure battery, or maybe there is a separate battery that needs replacing.

It's an electric spark and I'm on Ehu at the moment so it's not a power problem , have checked all the wiring I can and cleaned connections

Dave have you checked the circuit that the fridge is on to see that the trip has not gone off?

Have you checked the 12v circuit back from the sparking unit, hopefully it's not the board.
Also try lighting or with a gas wand, when you turn it on, there should be gas there, and auto sparker starts, so try it at that time.
