IR35 is just a tax scheme to allow HMRC to reduce corporate tendency to use under the table work for national insurance tax avoidance (as well as dividend disbursement tax dodges). It's based on the US 1099, but has little bearing on anything other than how you price your services. Now that zero hour contracts are common, it's fairly toothless. If you were planning on paying normal employment taxes and national insurance anyways, it's zero sum. Check the HMRC docs on self employment, filings and adjust your rate to allow for what you'll be paying extra.
I would put out feelers of switching to another gig, personally. Freelancing in the UK doesn't sound like fun to me, but you might like it. You could also just slack off a little if it's not challenging you and use some of the time to broaden your skillset.
The world is your oyster, as they say. Whoever they are.
