Yuk, oil in all the wrong places!

My beloved has suddenly started dropping a a lot of oil over the driveway, and this seem to happen if the engine is running or not. I've taken the covers off for a bit better access and can see oil all round the sump but mainly towards the rear of the engine on left hand side (looking from the from the rear of the car).

After cleaning everything up, I could see oil dribbling from behind the starter motor. So, I dropped the starter off to find a small hole that seems to be the source (image attached).

Any thoughts on what the hole is?

Reading a number of posts here, I'm starting to think that this could be a drain from the V, and that points to the Oil Cooler seals.

Any thoughts on the source of the leak would be appreciated.
