If you manually paid your bill and you have a direct debit set up, then it will be taken. Unless you pay your bill at least 8 days before direct debit is due.
In future, if you pay manually and your direct debit is almost due, you will have to cancel your direct debit at your bank and set it back up again.
Direct debit is an agreement that cannot be broken by o2 so they will still request it.
