I'm not an electrician so don't take my word as gospel but this is how I did Lee_H's.
Get the two red wires and twist them both together, then do the same to the two black wires.
You then need to locate your sidelight wires which is easy enough. Find the positive wire, cut it, expose the wires and solder into a sort of T shape making sure the old circuit is back connected but the red wires are also attached.
Do the same for the black side and it should work.
Make sure you use plenty of electric tape to cover up all exposed wires.

Here is a crap diagram to try and make some sense of it for you.

Yep you should be ok to use connectors.
I've attached an edited pic with arrows to which wires you need to use. Get both red a connect them to the live, get both black and connect them to the neutral.

I have attached a basic diagram which hopefully may explain things more clearly.
The wiring colour on the sidelight plug side isn't as shown in the diagram, I think it's brown and something else. I put it as red and black just to show how the wiring works.
