have you tried squashing the sides of it with it, its probably just seized in place and just needs a bit of force to remove it?

Worst comes to the worst, jab a screwdriver through it and use that for leverage.

The oil filter wrenches with the grippy arm are good for stubborn filters - does what Jeebo suggests

Okay problem solved, spoke to a mate who said brute force. It just needed a good tug, the new one just pops in and out like most I have seen but the one on the car was jammed solid. Thanks for the advice all the same.
