Usually a godd hard thump with a hammer to the rear of the drum helps - if not it could be the brake lining has become detached then its a puller off job. Sometimes driving back and forth gently helps.
Happened to me once on an Astra - luckily it had steel wheels and after emoving the wheel cover a single thump of the hammer (2lb) to the wheel was enough to get it freed
