Do you have motorised valves in this system? If so, it's possible that one or both or them are sticking open.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
The valves are not motorised but both of the valves are open
Is this a combi boiler, or a system boiler?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
It's a combi boiler
Ok. And when the boiler ignites
Ok. And at those times that the boiler ignites when you don’t expect it, is the flame symbol showing on the display of the room thermostat?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
No the flame symbol is not displayed on the thermostat when it randomly comes on

Either the thermostat receiver unit is malfunctioning, and calling for heat when it shouldn't, or the boiler is faulty.

If you turn off the receiver, does the boiler still ignite? If so, I would carry out a further check, which is to disconnect the receiver from the boiler, in case its relay is fused. In either case, if the boiler no longer ignites randomly, then the fault is in the receiver unit. If the boiler ignites when the receiver is disconnected, then the fault is in the boiler.
