So this noise happens when I’m in gear and driving as soon as I press clutch in the noise disappears, it’s the same at any speed, I’m thinking it’s a clutch problem any suggestions thank you?

Could be that it's slipping and make a winning noise. Yo Can try the following. Try to climb uphill slowly (a good slope is better) then push the accelerator. If the engine revs but you don't appear to go faster that means you cluch is slipping. You don't need to go very fast for that test. First Gear and slowest pace works.

Hopefully this works it’s like a loud rattle sort of noise.

Can't see the video but I'm guessing the main bearing has collapsed.
Fixable, but it's a 'take the engine appart' job tho.
