Id suggest, Roof works first, then leaking shower to stop any egress or ingress of water, then electrics and finally the ceiling.

This is dependent on the specifics e.g. is "electrics need doing" urgent work or not? Or is the crack in the dining room ceiling new and getting worse or years old? I would suggest generally the order (1) (3) (2) (4) but more detail definitely needed!

1. Repair the tiles before it turns into a bigger problem.
2. Repair shower before it causes more damage.
3. Electrics
4. Crack in ceiling.

Ensure all electrical quotes come with genuine Part p companies.

Agreed with DSH Solutions Ltd, and remember electrical works should be done before any decorations works.
