Is it the 1149cc D.I.E.T. engine? These have the starter motor at the front of the engine and therefore are exposed to the elements. Check the spade connector on to the motor - these often get corroded due to the water. Clean it up and if there's no improvement it's probably the starter motor. One consolation it's very easy to change and not too expensive to buy from a motor factor.
