Its more likely to be the temp sender, which is screwed into the thermostat and is easily changed. You can use multiscan to check the temperature the coolant is at when the engine is running and see if it is the thermostat or sender.

Think there was a leather interior for sale on gumtree lately...

The fan kicking in doesn't necessarily mean it was needed to cool the engine, it's also used by the aircon. So you can only assume the engine reached 90C if the fan started while aircon was off.
