As StevensOnln1 has inplied on the Hannington transmitter page, this is an independent "help" site not responsible for the transmitters or programmes.
As he went onto explain retuning is a bad idea when the problem is present. I would suggest that as you have retuned several times, the problem may be compounded by things not being correctly tuned and your set's memory may also be "confused". So when you normally have no issues during the week, then if you unplug your aerial and do a retune with it unplugged, this should clear the memory totally. Plug the aerial back in and do a retune again which should get all the correct channels.
To check that you are indeed tuned to the correct channels, enter you set's tuning menu and look for something such a signal checker/test option and check its tuned to UHF channels 45,42,39,40,43,46,55&56. That's for the multiplexes BBCA, D3&4, BBCB, COM4(SDN), COM5(ARQA), COM6)ARQB), COM7 & COM8 in that order - D3&4 being the one that carries most ITV channels.
As StevensOnln1went on to say this is most likely some form of interference that's only happening at a w/e.
Do you have any equipment that you only switch on at a weekend? A DVD/video recorder/Games Console etc. It's possible that such equipment may have an RF output that is interfering with UHF channel 42. Other electrical equipment may also cause interference but it would be unusual for it to only interfere with just one UHF channel. If you have equipment with RF outputs check they aren't tuned to UHF42 or channels below such as 37 or 31. If so I would retune them to channels somewhat above 56.
Do you perhaps have a near neighbour who is away during the week and has some equipment they switch on at the weekend. The same possible causes are possible.
Post back if you continue to have problems, listing the detailed checks you have done and any other useful information.

As far as I can see the main Mendip transmitter does not appear in the freeview retuning list, despite the fact that DigitalUK have declared that it will be retuned on the 5th June 2019 and again on the 19th June 2019. Is there something I don't understand about the retuning process ?

Put your post code into the Digital UK Coverage Checker at http://www.digitaluk.co.uk/coveragechecker/, enter your post code and house number, select the Detailed View option and press Go. Then scroll down to see the listing for Mendip where it shows that there will be a retune needed on or after 5th June and again on or after 19th June.
A wideband aerial is required for serviced=s from Mendip.
