In most circumstances, Universities mainly look at the A-Level grades that you receive rather than your GCSEs as A-Levels are the most recent representation of your work and studies.
However if you do find that the university you apply to, does focus on GCSE grades, then you can either ask your college/sixth form etc to re-take the English Language exam, or you can go back to your High School and ask for a recommendation from your English teacher, which basically would contain your teacher's thoughts on what you did in lessons, and whether you'd be fit enough to take the subject as a University course, despite not getting a high grade during your GCSEs.

Ask the universities you want to apply to, but I'm guessing that's probably acceptable as the B cancels out the C
