Overheating, squeaking engine and juddering steering. What has gone wrong?



Been searching the forum but can't seem to figure out what has gone wrong on my 2005 182FF. Recently changed my alternator after it died and all seemed to be going just fine for about a week then today I took her for a spin and I'm sure I felt something go under the car and then could hear a squeaking coming from the engine. Then noticed my temperature was maxed out and when I tried to turn the steering wheel it made an even louder squeaking nose and the steering judders quite strongly. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Perfect timing as I've arranged for it to be viewed tomorrow as I'm selling it but that seems unlikely now!

Definitely sounds belt related - both belts too, as the water pump is on the timing belt and the power steering is on the aux belt.
Does the car still run/idle?

Water pump is on the aux belt.
Check aux belt for its tension my guess is it will have failed or be slack.
