The voltages found in United Kingdom (230V) and Egypt (220V) are not exactly the same, but the difference is tolerable, so you should not need a transformer.

The frequency found in United Kingdom and Egypt is exactly the same (50Hz). The timing devices and appliances that use motors will function as expected under this frequency.

you will need a travel adapter for a trip from the United Kingdom to Egypt. In Egypt, the people are using different plugs and sockets that are not compatible with plugs from the United Kingdom!
