I’m a ex-BMW tech and this fault isn’t uncommon you need the biggest pair of grips (water pump pliers) that MAC sell you grab it with these and then pull, yank and twist it as had as you can until the little bas***d comes out.

The parts that were left over from your plastic impellar will do one of the following...
Disolve.... very unlikely... but the water coolant mixture isnt the most nuetral mixture in the world...
Get stuck in a line... or passage in the block... This is noted in many peoples engine overheating problems... solution... well there really isnt any great solutions... besides to pull flush your system... as best you can... take the hoses off and flush them by hand by means of a water hose or something of that nature... other than that... there is no great way to get those pieces of plastic out of there.... unless I havnt heard it yet...
