Default Gear cable jumped off gearbox, help

Hi guys, was driving home yesterday and when I tried to down shift from 5th to 3rd I lost all gears. Pulled over, had a feel around the back of the engine (burning my hand a few times on the exhaust) and noticed the forward/back cable (that actually selects the gear) had popped off the ball joint on the gearbox. Pushed it back on as hard as I could and it worked until I selected 3rd again when it jumped off again.
Anyone have any ideas how I can temporarily fix the socket of the cable to the ball joint until I can get the car home to replace the cable?
It's a 407 SW 2.0 petrol.
