Make sure you are trying to turn the wheel at the same time as the key and push the ignition barrel in with the key at the same time as well. Mine gets stuck unless I do these things.

Found this info :
Ever get in your car, put your car key in the ignition, and realize you can't turn the car key? It happens to everybody. Before you turn green, burst out of your blouse and rip the head off the key trying to force it, try this more gentle approach. Your car has a steering lock that clicks into place when you take the car key out of the ignition. This prevents thieves from being able to steer your car if they hotwire it. Sometimes the wheel is turned to just the right place to keep your key from being able to disengage that steering wheel lock. All you have to do is turn the wheel a little bit in either direction while you turn they key. Voila! Everything's moving again. Now get to work!
any good ? ....................................... good luck :thumbsup:

this happened on my first car (a clio) and it was due to the barrel being broke (a pin inside)

Is it an automatic if so it may not be in parked?
#12

ours had like a chip you had to put in a slot and then the key and if the chip gets a bit dirty or static then clean and it then worked

More than likely your ignition Barrel gone mate, Vauxhalls are prone to them failing.
