Since i started playing golf my shot shape has always been left to right, at first it was a major slice but gradually straightened it out a bit.
However no matter what i do i cant stop coming OTT, takeaway is good and position at the top of the backswing is good but as soon as i start the downswing i come over the top everytime.
A straight drive for me is still about a 10yard fade but a bad one can be a massive slice, when i do try to swing inside out on the ball it hits the hosel and goes about 20yards to the left.
What can i do to correct this?

There are a couple reasons you come over the top.

At address your spine is straight to titled slightly left. You're going to feel the opposite, especially with a driver, bump the hips a few inches forward with the head not moving forward. Will get you to look more like the right pic. Also turn both feet out, will help make the next two pieces much easier to accomplish.

Then on the backswing the head and hips move too far to the right. You're going to want to feel like you set the hips a few inches more forward at address and that the left hip stays forward as you make your backswing.

Maybe the biggest reason you swing OTT, coming into impact and the hips are farther back than they were at address (green line). Compare that to the player on the right where the hips and weight have transferred forward.

Here's a great feel for the weight forward piece

Yes all the pieces I mentioned will help you swing outward much more.
