    Done a search and nothing came up, felt a bit funny yesterday now it does not open at all so have to keep putting the window down to get out and the windows are getting frozen shut! Anyone had this before I start taking the door card apart and getting confused?!

    Either the cable has come off the back of the door handle itself or at the other end on the lock, or it has snapped. This happened to one of the rear doors on my Clio the other week, luckily it had come off rather than it being a break in the cable.
    The only way to find out is to get the door card off and see what's potentially broken.

    One way to tell is if the handle has resistance, if the cable has come off/broken then the handle will have no resistance to it.

    I cant help with your problem, but you do need to get it fixed before you take it for an MOT, as both front doors must open from both the inside and outside.
