I FIXED IT !!!!
OK.....I'll calm down and explain how I did it. Not sure if this is a stealth fix pushed out by Rockstar or I am just lucky
Firstly, you will need to launch GTA:O (Those with X360's will obviously need a gold sub)
Secondly, while in GTA:O freemode, go into a barber shop and change your hairstyle (It may also work if you use a customs shop, tattoo parlor etc as well...but unsure). Cannot stress enough that you need to actually use the barber shop to change your hair, possibly just walking in and out won't work
Thirdly, return to Singleplayer / Story mode
Voila, fixed .... well it did for me. I confirmed all the map icons were back for all 3 characters and went into a chop shop, changed my haircut, got a tattoo....everything working the way it should !
Once you confirm everything is ok, might be worth going into a barbershop in singleplayer, and changing your hairdo...as that will trigger an autosave (overwriting that 'corrupt' autosave). Also perform a manual save as a backup !
I also restarted my console (x360) to ensure it wasn't a once off glitch in my favour...and yes, once re-launching the game and going straight back into SP mode...everything has remained. 100% fixed
Hopefully this fixes it also for everyone else here. At this stage, unsure if the issue was related to game data which had somehow become glitched due to GTA:O or if its the savegames...I'm starting to think its the former, as triggering one of the broken sequences/animations seems to fix it all up.
-edit - I just remembered, while I was in GTA:O, I also went into a clothes store and browsed a few shirts. Not sure if this is required, I think you just need to access and use one of those 'broken' items from the singleplayer (ie clothes shop, tattoo parlour, custom shops or barber) for it to work. Just thought I would mention it so you guys knew exactly what I did to get mine working again
