      What is the grey cable running outside, is this feeding your upstairs extension?
      The green and brown wires from the grey cable join the green and brown cables from within the Black cable at that point - if that makes sense.

      The grey cable is the one running from the upstairs extension

      How about just cutting the splice altogether so that you only have the single pair from the BT drop wire connecting to the rear of your socket, and then you can directly connect the extension wire to your faceplate. If that makes any sense.

      Yeah was planning on doing that - no idea why they didnt do that in first place? They just using the green and brown of the BT line as sort of extensions into the faceplate when it could have gone directly into wall and into faceplate that way.

      They have spliced into the main BT line for no reason as far as i can tell unless it was setup as something else beforehand

      There is not much wrong with the way it has been connected. It has been done that way so that the least disruption would be caused when the extension was put in. Less holes being drilled in the building fabric. If the extension had been spliced to the main wires feeding the master socket, this would have been incorrect. As it is it is perfectly acceptable.

      The way I understood the OP was that the extension wires had indeed been spliced to the incoming drop wire going to the master. Reading it again it sounds like the incoming green and brown wires from the drop cable have been cut, and the extension wires have been joined to the remaining wires which has been connected to the master socket faceplate. This sounds OK as long as the join is sound.
