Sorry i may have mislead you saying that.
I deactivated the verification and re verified while refreshing to remove any cache to ensure the changes took place however there were no changes with respect to GP Premium seeing the correct version.
Following re verifying and my last post I also deactivated the plugin and reactivated but no change. I still cant get access to the v1.1 update.
I have created a temp admin log in which I am emailing to the support account now.
