How long has the basket been planted with these pansies, and is it in full sun all day?

I fear they have exhausted themselves Anneth. You could try cutting them back quite there's only a couple of inches of growth left and they might come back beautifully for you, but tbh, looking at them I think I'd tip them out and get some new ones. If they do come back again, it will take a while.

I agree with the consensus here. Pansies are cool/cold weather plants. They go dormant about now, but will come back in the Fall. They simply run out of gas. I would give your baskets a makeover. Install some summer blooming annuals

Ahhhh gutted. Thank you. They have a gel layer in them should I scrap that too?

Usually better if you do, but not always necessary. If it has turned brown, I would discard it: it has absorbed too many toxins.
