not sure if its the same on the corsas as the astra but are you sure its the engine light flashing and not a electronics light?

on the astras if it flashes when trying to start the car it means the imobbliser is on, if you've got a spare key try that,

if its the immobiliser causing the problem you would probably have to take it to a vauxhall dealer to have a new key programmed.

Yes, it's an immobiliser problem.

Take the key out the ignition, lock and unlock the car, then try again from scratch.

If that still fails, try disconnecting the battery for 10 mins (if you have your radio security code of course) and then reconnect and try again.
