SOURCE: Stuck Bonnet!
Try having someone hold the lever to open it, then you go to the front and try prying the hood (bonnet?) up with your fingers. You may have to give a slight push down first.
If that doesn't work, you try 'bopping' the hood near the front edge with the side of your closed fist, also with someone holding the lever to open the hood. ...not enough to dent it, tho.
Once it is open, lube the latch assembly with some sae 30 oil. If it is rusted, lube it with WD-40, and after a few days of opening it up several times a day, lube it with the 30-wt. oil.

the bonnet is held down with a spring thats constantly under tension. to get the bonnet open you have to remove one side of the tension where the spring connects to the slam panel. put your hand in the grille and feel for where the spring goes into the slam panel, and use something like a tyre lever put through the grille hole to pop the spring away from the slam panel, thus releasing the tension. you should be able to just pull the bonnet up. my corsa has just done the same thing and this is the only way i could get into it.
