Out of curiosity what are the finer details

What Month and Year is the car what Month did you purchase it and what mileage, and at when did the fault occur and at what mileage.

Just curios to know how strict Vauxhall are been ref a missed service, i've always not been bothered about letting it run over by a month or so due to low milage.

But if they are been super strict it could be best if we all know for future.

A day sounds reasonable,I think you mean an hour, which is daylight robbery. You were stuck between a rock and a hard place though.
