    No worries Stevey  ;)
    Pix are taking a while to load, but from what I can see, the main trunk has been damaged [ it's quite top heavy] but you have a load of new shoots coming through which will take it's place anyway, so it's not a disaster  :)
    Is the main trunk totally broken? It might be better to remove it completely if it is. I can't see well enough, and it's quite green still, but that may change if it's just happened recently, and is damaged beyond repair. 
    Is it planted directly into the ground?

    I think it's probably a gonner then. The new bits will grow and take over in time though  :)
    You could  try staking it and taping it together, but I doubt it'll work. Keep an eye on it, and when the main trunk deteriorates more,  just remove it. Or remove it now if it looks like it could cause further damage.

    Remove that broken main stem completely and let the light get to those offsets.  I think you can then lift the plant next spring and pot up or plant out ever single offset and have a forest of plants.    They'll need careful watering before you dig them up and then, ideally, potting on in good compost till they get established as individuals and then you can plant them out or keep them in pots.
