New Gaming PC is only playing Fortnite at 60 TPS

With a £600 budget you're going to struggle to get anything decent no matter what you do unfortunately. At this sort of budget you are basically purchasing a disposable system. There won't be any path or room to upgrade. This means that you end up buying an entire system for each "upgrade". The good thing about this is that you can be fairly consistent with your budget and spending and continually get a low tier system for similar outlay.

With a system for starting off but considering the future upgrade ability as well, you would be looking at around £800.

Recommended upgrades even to the below (which is the absolute lowest I would recommend) would be upgrading to 2x8GB 3200Mhz RAM and the 1650 Super.

I see this is available from Currys - given that they might allow me to exchange, but not refund. Is this the same machine basically?

That’s a very different system. Did you buy it in store or online and how long ago?
 
I purchased it online and collected it from the shop. But they are advertising it as 142fps, so I could just say that it is not delivering that..

So in that case you can return for a full refund no questions asked within 14 days. I’d suggest you do that then come back and get some advice on a custom build that would last significantly longer and perform better.
