Hi Guys,

The hosting company i used to use for my database has gone bust (i had my web hosting and db hosting separate - long story)

Can I setup a new database on my hosting company and just point the wp-config file there to get it working again? the site is http://nuanceconsultancy.com

Yes.  

Restore the database with the hosting company and setup the database user.  Then update the wp-config accordingly (DB_HOST, DB_NAME, DB_USER, DB_PASSWORD).
