Consensus on here is to forget your local shop and o2 and go direct to an Apple store.

£139 from the Genius Bar - but they give you a whole new phone - however I think if it's just the screen it could be a simple repair which is cheaper. It would have been £69 on my daughter's out of warranty 3GS but got it for free. It costs nothing to ask!
PS I found it's easier making an appointment online than phoning Apple Tech Support, friendly though they are it takes time reading out S/N numbers etc - online you just click on an available timeslot and give a few brief details if you want to.
