Status bar icons have gone!

When I swipe down from the top, I just can't see any of the icons: WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC, airline mode, portrait/auto-rotate, etc. Everything still works OK, but I have to go into the settings to do things. Very tedious, especially if I just want to turn Bluetooth on or off, or connect a device. It's been like this for about a week. I guess it goes without saying that I don't remember changing anything, or whether it happened after a restart or just suddenly and randomly. Any help out there??? Thanks!

Swipe down status bar twice then tap "pen" icon. Furthermore, swipe down then drag to add tile onto the status bar.

If you swipe down  the status  bar,  you can long press the settings cog, this will enable the hidden UI menu,  you can find it on the main settings screen at the bottom of all the options near "about phone"

Ah, OK, thanks very much! I must have done something inadvertantly. I really thought I had a bug.
