The usual reason for this would be that the parameters passed through to
the WAYF don't appear to refer to an SP that is registered in the UK
federation. For example, if your SP's entity ID had changed or
something along those lines.
This happens because the WAYF is trying to be intelligent and present
you with "appropriate" IdPs... for an unknown SP, there are none so the
list becomes empty.
If you stop at the WAYF page with the empty list, send me the URL from
the address bar and I can check whether this is what is happening.
