How likely is it that sfe will grant financial hardship and give me my full loan?

So I suspended my studies for mental health reasons earlier in the year but because everything took so long (partially my fault for filling out the forms incorrectly but also the uni for only just sending them off recently) I received my full maintenance loan all 3 semesters. I also spent it all as I have had to pay for all my meals and bills in that time (I definitely shouldn't have spent a penny of it I know this but I have done now and there's no going back)
I know that they take any money that was given to me while I wasn't in uni off from what I get next year, but manchester is expensive and me and my family are poor so I need the full amount. I've been told I can apply for financial hardship but I need to show them bank account records thag prove I can't afford to live in Manchester without the full loan. But my records will show me receiving a full loan and therefore having enough money.
What shall I do? Does anything think I will/won't be accepted for this? Is there anywhere else I can put this question if this is the wrong place?
Thank you in advance for reading/replying,

Can you get a job over the summer holidays to make up the shortfall in next year's loan?
