Nope, plastic's fine.
The shower itself will be earthed: it certainly doesn't rely on its water
supply pipe for this in any way.
As for any installation the incoming cold water supply should be x-bonded to
the electrical supply earth (by the meter) and to the gas.
(Q for the panel: if the incoming water pipe is MDPE and the installation
pipework is also plastic does one x-bond the stopcock?)
