Broken hot shoe on flash

Stupidly picked up my camera to place it on the floor and it slipped out of my hand as it dropped to the floor. I managed to grab it by the flash head, so that it didn't hit the floor, but in doing so, I've broken the edge of the plastic shoe that slides into the hot shoe on my Canon 550D. The flash will no longer mount on the camera as the plastic part that holds it in place has gone. It's a Jessops 360AFD and I've tried to search the net for the replacement part to no avail. It looks like the bottom part can be unscrewed and removed so I just need to know how to get a replacement.

I will try phoning Jessops tomorrow but wondered if anyone else had some suggestions on where I might be able to source a part.

Thanks in advance.

Only seems to be a couple sold as spares for £25 - seems a bit steep for what I want to replace. Just wondered if I could get a new part cheaper from some other source.
