One For The Mums Perhaps?

Ok, here's the deal:

I've gone and gotten myself in a bit of a pickle with the cling film. That's to say, somewhere along the line it seems to have torn down the middle or something and now I've got some of it coming off the roll as it should but the rest has just turned into a nasty mess on the roll and has made it impossible for me to get any more cling film off.

I tried cutting the excess off with a knife, I tried unwrapping it, I tried feeding it along the roll to try and get it to come off at the end. I've tried everything I can think of. It's a nearly new roll so I don't want to chuck it away, but what I can still get off is far too thin to be usable.

So, what I want to know is: is there a trick for fixing a roll of cling film when it all goes tits up? I'm sure there must be a method to it; some closely guarded secret that only those who frequent the kitchen regularly know. I'm sure this problem comes along all the time, so there must be someone reading this who knows how to fix it.

Any ideas?
