Contract cancellation impossible

Hay everyone, please help. I have been travelling since Jan and have been paying for my contract since it ran out on the 24th of Sept. I've tried cancelling it loads but as I'm living in New Zealand and it costs a fortune to ring and since leaving home I've had nearly 1000 of charges I can't phone. I've lost my uk phone and sim and can't reset any security info on my app which I redownloaded through my email. I can't receive their texts or answer a security question as I don't know what it even remotely is. They are making it impossible to cancel and I'm paying a lot for a phone I haven't used now in a definite 6 months and it will continue. I tried cancelling my dd but they gave me a late payment charge. Please any help would be great.
