Also mate. If your viv does get below 15c, just get one of these Swell Ceramic Heat Emitters | Swell Reptiles

Heat with no light.

But honestly, over the past few years in this cold uk weather, mine has still never dropped below 15c.
I guess it depends where your viv is and how cold the room gets. But it should be fine

Just have the UV and your Basking bulb plugged into a timer (still using the dimming stat). Mine is on from 8am till 8pm.

It might well be. But I wouldn't want to be sleeping at 10c. So the 15c is a good marker. And still 5c below the average room temperature. So plenty of room for fluctuations.

And I know they often get much lower in the wild. But there not in the wild are they, and our beardies never have been

Good job.

To be honest, even In the dead of winter it will be above 15c. But even at around 15c most people end up putting the heating on. So you'll be just fine

Setup sounds like it's covered.
How old is your beardie?
What do you normally feed and how much?
How long have they not been eating?

As has been said, weight is the key thing to monitor and if his/her weight isn't dropping then don't worry too much. I've found that my beardie as she grew up went off crickets, switched to locusts, went off those, switched to roaches.. but I try to keep a mix of locusts (for the chase) with the roaches and then the occasional small bowl of mealies with a few was worms.

Maybe get a small tub of something different from a local pet shop to see if it sparks interest.
