Whats my name? and help me

cornwall, United Kingdom Gb

This is in my lounge, it looks healthy, but some of the leaves have been burnt with my lamp, unfortunately, I have moved the lamp but need help and advise in restoring it - re potting it or what........




Hi Susie welcome to goy - this looks like a variegated fig plant.Quite robust removing damaged leaves wont hurt.Re - pot when you notice roots appearing from base of pot.Can get tall and leggy and lower leaves fade and fall , new growth can be pinched out once you feel tall enough.Appreciate spray misting of leaves do not like standing in water saucers.
Hope this helps - sure someone will know proper botanical name and more info.assuming I got right plant!
