The wilting could be due to the low temps, if so, I wouldn't worry. If the wilting is from dehydration however I would worry. The plants you have should be able withstand an English winter without any problems as long as they are kept wet enough.

It sounds like dehydration to me too,i'd give them some water and see if they perk up.
Do the pots they are in feel light if you pick them up?
they should be kept damp through the winter
