I was living in the UK last year, and found quite afew of the US products
were available in specialty health food shops (probably more so than in
Australia). You might want to try Holland and Barrett, they stock a lot of
vegetarian products. I can't remember if they stock MoriNu lite tofu, but I
was definitely able to get it from my local HFS in Glasgow, so I'm sure it
would be available elsewhere. I also remember seeing the egg replacers
there too. As for low fat or fat free cheese - forget it! The lowest fat
cheese I was able to find was still 10% fat! 
Hope this helps. Even though there are plenty of vegetarians in the UK, I
found it difficult maintaining a low-fat/fat-free lifestyle.
