Hi guys new to being a sparky,fresh faced as you'd call me
Anyhow I'm changing a busted cooker isolation socket to a double gang sockets instead
Having a bit of an issue fitting the old black and red 10mm into a double gang socket has to sets of cable and for the life of me can't get them to fit in the holes (haha yes I know having issue getting it in the hole) but any info or tips will be greatly appreciated.
Will I need to change cables as well but unsure what it runs to from here ,this houses wiring is backwards as it is. Had 2 bedroom light rings crossed so to turn light on in the left hand room had to turn switch on in the right ...that explains how badly wired this place was.

Thanks guys

You'll never get a 10mm cable into a standard socket, 6mm maybe. Cable needs replacing should be a fairly straightforward run from the cooker switch back to the CU. alternative would be to leave as is and extend the kitchen ring (probably less hassle.)
