Olive on Hydraulic Brake Hose

Due to replacing a leaking calliper I'm trying to recycle my hydraulic brake hose by removing the old olive and insert. I simply can't shift the olive and am wondering whether I should just buy a new hose and go from there. I could cut the hose but I'm right at my limits for length so really need to get the olive shifted but like I say I can't... has anyone any tips or advice? I've tried putting pliers or a spanner behind it and hammering off but to no effect, I have considered hacksawing it but am worried i'll damage the hose.
