Does the back of your electric shower resemble this ?
So your old shower has been tiled around rather than behind - someone has used a block connector to extend the wires ?
New replacement showers require a flat surface to fix to - otherwise your warranty is void ! The reason being that when the unit is fixed to an un-even wall the unit will flex and twist this may bind the switches making them stick in the on or off position or the casing will not fit correctly.
Before - Quite often we come across this scenario where the shower has been tiled around the outside. Manufacturers look for this so they can renege on their warranty FACT ! We have a solution that avoids having to fill in the hole left by the previous shower.
We always replace any block connectors with a purpose made crimps and insulation sleeves.
After - So I tidy up the wiring and fit a new acrylic panel which covers the imprint of the previous shower.
These panels are a solid 5mm thick giving a rigid base to support your new shower they are very striking. Choose a colour to co-ordinate or to contrast your tile scheme.

I replaced this Triton Ivory 2 with a new Triton Enrich - I knew the fixings and the shape of both showers were identical so replacement was straight forward fitting the new shower in the imprint of the last shower which was formed with grout !
But I informed the customer before starting the job not to expect manufacturer support if the unit fails as this method of fitting voids the warranty.
