Hi
It sounds like she is dehydrated but she really needs to see a specialist tortoise vet as she has associated symptoms. In the meantime give her lots of baths to get her hydrated and  keep her warm in an ambient temperatures of about 22c.
I know it is the Bank Holiday, but maybe if you phone first thing this morning they may be able to help you.
Keep us posted
Jane
