I use hollow wall anchors for all my permanent fixings to plasterboard; although it is just about possible to fit them without, I would definitely invest in getting a setting tool to fit them. You can get them, and the setting tool from Screwfix, but I would recommend getting a brand, like Rawlplug, I think they call them intersets, rather than Screwfix's own make as they can be of variable quality.
