Looking at a pool of
oil on the garage

Hi Marcus. I had exactly those symptoms recently, initially only when cold but eventually all the time. It is not a pleasant noise! It was an idler pulley. New one fitted in 20 mins by Autolusso Bournemouth, also shimmed out an extra 0.5mm away from the engine as it was rubbing slightly. The belt itself was fine.
Soap on the belt sounds like just asking for it to slip ...
