Sorry to hear your appliance is having issues, please stand by while I find the answer for you, this is not an immediate service however I will try and respond as soon as possible.
What is the model number of your appliance?

Customer: replied 6 days ago.

The most common cause when too much water is used the hob keeps trying to ignite (clicking) even when not in use, the other potential cause is water can get into the jets and stop gas is prevented getting out to the jet.

Based on your customer saying its not igniting it sounds like the jets may have become blocked but unusual for all 4 to have stopped working by a simple cleaning water soap and water.

Typically leaving the appliance overnight and trying in the morning normally allows water to evaporate and work as normal, I would double check the red isolation switch for the cooker (which the hob normally spurs from) has not been turned off as clearly the hob needs power for the ignition side of things to work.

This model is a rather basic model as shown by the diagram here.
