Additional engine noise when idling, what is it- big trouble?

My 159 jdtm has just started making (what i can only describe as..) an additional engine noise when idling. It is quite noticeable in the cabin, but goes as you move up to 2nd/3rd gear and when the revs climb. It also only appears once the engine is warmed up

Has anyone had a similar problem?

I'm worried- I have a long trip coming up from Surrey to Yorkshire on Wednesday, this has just developed and chances are i'm not going to be able to get anyone to have a look at it before then.
I've checked hundreds of threads but can't find something which exactly matches this issue.

Probably need a little more info... is it a droning , tapping, whining, have lifted the bonnet to narrow it down. Does the nose vary with revs?
