I think your meant to bleed a corsa system eg: front left, rear right, front right rear left, something like that. Can be a pain if you can't bleed it at the back.

Could be your master cylinder, a garage will check it for you. Bleeding brakes can take a long long long time, it might go right or very wrong!

Test the master cylinder if thats ok, get a garage to bleed it for you, that way if your not happy you can take it back and say its unsatisfactory!

Probably got alot of tiny bubbles in the system, can be a real arse to do!

(check the seals on the back cylinders in the drums, could be leaking)

I'd check the seal on the master cylnder, failing that you can adjust the pedal so it's already compressed the MC slightly, but that's just curing symptoms not fixing the problem.
