yes, but you knead to be happy to change a light switch, most uk light circuits only switch the live so you have to buy a switch that dose not require a neutral to work, you may require a spacer or even replacing the back box.

newer lighting circuits have live and neutral at the switch but you would have to check alternatively you could use a wifi switch and leave the light switch on for example SONOFF DUAL: WiFi Smart Switch to control 2 devices | SONOFF Official

google "smart light switch no neutral uk"

i used Mi|Home Smart Single Light Switch (Chrome)

disclaimer you should consult a qualified electrician befor working on any electrics
