The chances of this happening, especially in the current climate, are virtually zero. Although the transmitter serves around 10,000 homes, the commercial operators wouldn't consider the capital expenditure that would be required (for the transmitters and links) to be a viable proposition. That's also on the assumption that channels for such additional multiplexes would be available without causing interference to other transmitters.
It could depend on the exact location in your postcode as to whether you'd get any reception from Durris for the commercial multiplexes in particular. For some locations the predictions are zero. for others it's poor and unlikely to be reliable.
Your best option would be to consider Freesat. A lot of modern TVs have a Satellite tuner built-in, so all you'd need would be the Dish and LNB.
