My initial answer is below, but after writing realised that, if it was me, I'd call these guys Car Care Products | Detailing Products | Free UK Delivery (01467 631201) and get their recommendation/advice first in case they have the answer. Or any of the forum detailing sponsors (ABC Detailing, PW Pro).

Otherwise:

Try fairy liquid and then, if that fails, try dishwashing liquid (preferably
a liquid tab one that you can cut open and use the liquid from inside). This is usually enough to remove oil from clothes so I'd imagine it should work on seats. Take it slowly and don't be too aggressive with it to start with. Making multiple attempts doesn't matter if it works in the end :)

If you can test it on a bit of the red leather that doesn't show first, that would be a good idea.

Failing that, you'll maybe need some sort of chemical degreaser - but then you'd definitely want to be checking it won't affect the leather beforehand!

Let us know how it goes, as this would be useful to know for future.
