There aren't any reported transmitter problems at this time, I assume you are receiving from Hannington (but a full postcode would be needed to look at your predicted reception). There was some talk of atmospherics - Tropospheric Ducting - disrupting reception over the bank holiday - see How clear skies and fine weather can affect your TV reception | Help receiving TV and radio and the linked page.
If you lose signal and try retuning you may get signals from a different transmitter and lose them again as the propagation changes, and then you'll have to retune again and maybe unsuccessful in getting your regular signals back until the disruption subsides.
