Brakes were great before i snapped the metal pipe on the end of the flexi to one of the front calipers. I fitted a new flexi hose the next day but snapped the bleed nipple at that caliper when trying to bleed it. I fitted my pressure bleeder and bled that caliper at the flexi union but still had a rubbish pedal. Since then I've done it the manual way with an assistant at all wheels, gravity bled all corners and pressure bled the system a million times. Is it possible air trapped between the flexi union and the bleed nipple could be causing this?

Quite likely you have trapped air.
You may get around this by slackening off the union to the flexible hose and pushing the caliper open. This will push trapped air (if any) back past the union.
You might need to plan on removing the caliper to have the bleed nipple drilled out sometime.
