If it is seized up and it's not the cable (will find out if it's the cable later when I take it off) will it be the steering bracket that's seized?

It might be however for an outboard swivel to sieze it would normally happen over a long period of innactivity (6 months) and even that would only happen due to severe lack of maintenance.

I've been trying to think I'd say the outboard hasn't moved for nearly 2 months. Seems a little too short a time to seize doesn't it. Hoping and praying it's the cable. Fancy baby sitting Chris so I can have a look?

Steering cable is probably rusted to the tilt tube. Take the drag link off and try moving the cable. If you have to hit it with a hammer, take care that you don't ovalise the hole in the end of the cable which the drag link goes through.
