If it was temp work then it should be OK as long as the UK was still your 'main home'.

For example if you were working on cruise ships for a few months at a time but were Florida based with US residence then you would probably not be eligible. At a guess, I'd say this should be OK.

Thank you so much for the reply!! Yes my main home is the UK and always has been, but i went away 4 times- so do you think this would still class as 'temporary'work? Thanks again

Where were you paying tax? If the UK, then that shows that you were a resident of the UK at the time.
