What type of tiles should i use for a splashback behind the cooker?
ceramic tiles are a good shout and as said as above a glazed finish will be much easier to clean, but i would also consider a purpose made splashback for example a stainless steel one or similar

i would go with a ceramic tile with a glazed finish (not matt)as they are easier to clean.

ceramic are best as they will not be affected by steam or grease

A Granite tile would be also ideal, Dark tile that's easy to clean to and does not show dirt as easily to.
A porcelain gloss finish tile too.
the thing to remember around cooker areas is to avoid light coloured tiles and light coloured grouts as they show most dirt and hard to keep clean.
Natural stone tiles can be used as long as they are treated with a correct tile sealant to prevent dirt and grease staining tile.
