Not quite like that, but EvoHosting (http://evohosting.co.uk/) runs 
CentOS on their servers and you can install various open source software 
through CPanel, their administrative interface.
I use them, and am v. happy with their service.

You could consider UKFSN (www.ukfsn.org) too, as they raise money for OSS.

But avoid Fasthosts - they're incompetent. And that's going to be my 
.sig until they get their act together vis-a-vis one of my clients.
