Can't get the damn filter off!

Decided I didn't trust the dealer I bought my much loved 159 from last week (previous issue with a car from dealer and oil/engine problem), decided to flush the engine and get new, good quality oil in her

Engine flushed, oil drained, even ran another 2 litre of oil straight through to carry any other crap out, then couldn't find my tool to get the filter off!!

Anyway, after much swearing, I've had to put the new oil in with the old filter on, and can't get it all done again until next week, it means I'll have to put about 800 miles through it, there isn't gonna be that much crap/flush left in the old filter to cause any issue is there? It should be find shouldn't it?

Ive stabbed a screw driver in the side of one before and used that to turn the oil filter, when it wouldn't budge with the chain remover tool.
