When was it last changed? I think its 100k miles or 10 years (which ever comes first) on a 1.6.

Your head may have warped too, Get a garage to do a compression test on each cylinder.
They just remove the plugs and screw a pressure guage into each plug port in turn to test pressures.

Its good news its not gone. If it had slipped it would probably still run but really rough. Does it still turn over on the starter?
Its a 1.8 mate and the cam belt hasn't gone as you can see the cams turning when you turn the key

Unfortunately the only way to know for sure whether there's a problem with the headgasket is to do a compression test, remove plugs and scew the tool in each cylinder while cranking.
To test the spark plugs, take one out and connect the HT lead, rest the plug against some metal and you'll visibly see the spark jump - if each of the plugs are sparking and the fuel system is good, there's a good chance the damage is inside the engine.
This is just my opinion, and I have a terrible dose of flu at the minute - so forgive any spelling mistakes.
