stuck track rod end

Hi the outer track rod end nut is stuck to the brake side, including the "locking nut in the middle"

Any tips for getting them out or is there a special tool or something im missing. Desperate to get it done now as have no choice as ive got the brakes off etc. The outer end nut is lose just stuck on at the end of the thread and just keeps spinning? Or is this because im trying to get that off before loosing the "locking nut"

Any help would be greatly appreciated, ive sprayed some WD40 in there which fingers crossed may loosen things up over night.

Many thanks for any advice in advance
