What to do with wood chip wall papered ceiling? Replace it?

Hello! May I please have some advice? We have a 3 bedroom flat which is entirely covered by woodchip wall paper (including the ceiling) We’re in the process of removing it all but I’m not sure which way is the best/wise for the ceilings. If I take the wall paper off, the ceiling won’t be perfectly clean and it’ll need professionals to fix. Will I be better off just replacing all the ceiling boards and re-plastering? If so should we take the ceilings down ourselves to make the cost lower? If possible I don’t want to over-board because some areas of the ceiling are not in great condition. I am spending time to research and get information to fix this flat in the best possible way with reasonable cost. We’re trying to do ‘no skill required’ labouring jobs before we ask quotations and start renovation. Thank you very much for reading and I would appreciate your advice. Kind regards, H

To be honest I will take all ceilings down and plasterboard and plaster and repaint again you supply materials and get someone to do daywork for you that way it will keep the cost down
