Well the BBC have reported one fault -
From 6:58:00pm to 7:25:27pm on 19th Feb 2022 BBC B HD Off the air due to a fault.
If you perchance retuned when there was no signal it will most likely just have cleared your correct tuning and so you may not know if it's back on air.
I would imagine with all the outages that are likely to be about, staff everywhere are having trouble keeping up with it all. You could try checking via your power distribution company's website if there's a power outage which might be the cause.
Hey, done it for you, Electricity North West shows there was a power cut and power has now been restored.
