I have not had it checked yet as my mot is due in jan how sure are you, .can you think of anything else it could be before I involve the garage

You could have a radial imperfection in the tire or an exhaust leak as well.
Your symptoms sound like a bad rear or front driveshaft U-joint though to be honest. That's the first thing I would inspect if I were you.
