Most likely the back of the valve cover, the rubber gasket can give way, or it could be the breather hose going into the turbo intake pipe from the valve cover which may be leaking - neither are a a major issue, just annoying.

Likely the valve cover.

Will that leak fail you for a MOT?

I assume MOT is like the inspection we have here in the states.
