Try clearing your message app cache to see if it helps as someone else with the same problem found they suddenly started coming through.

Also check the tips here Guide: Text Message Tips (not sent or received) and see if a reboot helps?

I guess you'll need to call customer service then.
Numbers here Guide: Coronavirus Community Help and Support 
Or advice from an O2 Guru regarding a way to get through:
If you call 202, when it comes to the reason you are calling stay silent for 15 seconds and you will be taken to the keypad options.
Press 2 for Everything Else
Press 5 for More Options
Press 7 for Anything Else which will put you though to someone.
Say "Upgrade", "Lost/Stolen" or "Fraud" if you have to, to get put through to someone.
