.....so I've bought an ex-rental one, its been fantastic for leisure and
school runs, but I'm wondering if it would be prudent to replace the
universal joint bolts in case they are fatigued, as they are a tad critical.

Or am I worrying unnecessarily?

Check this:

But no, I think the bolts are probably fine unless they are the
too-short ones listed.

Replace 'em. There's recently been a safety recall on them. Yours may
already have been fitted with the new, safer bolts, but unless you know
for certain it has it would be a good plan. As I understand it the new
bolt kit will be fitted free at any Adams dealer.
