Recently as I pedal it sounds like a rattle noise coming the big cog area. It seems to happen every time I pedal the right pedal. Any ideas? I thought it might of been the hook from the pannier against the spoke, it's that sort of sound but it isn't that.

Flappy toe strap?
R/H crank hitting end of front derailleur cable?

Does it happen with bike on the stand or only on the road?

Check that the derailleur cage isn't contacting the chain; the chainring will never be perfectly true, which would explain why the noise only happens for part of the rotation. There is always a small amount of distortion of the cranks as well, but do also check that the crank isn't loose on the bottom bracket axle.
