I have two days left on my interrail and have used bioth my inbound and outbound days to the UK.

If I want to go to Paris, I understand that I have to get myself to St Pancras. But can I use my remaining day on the Eurostar. I know that I will pass UK border control before boarding the train, so technically the train is not in the UK, but what are the interrail rules? Is there a definitive answer?

You're boarding a train in your country of residence, so the journey will need an in/outbound.

As above, you won’t be able to add any more UK travel days, and Eurostar is UK travel.

You can buy a ticket to Lille or Paris, and use your pass beyond there. Or of course take ferry/ plane out of the UK.

Correcting myself, just in case…

Interrail classes GB, rather than UK, as a territory.

Ireland, including Northern Ireland, is a separate territory.
