I want to do a brake fluid flush over the weekend but I don't know what size wrench I need.
I had a look and I think I may need two different ones,one for the front and one for the back.

Any help would be great,thanks.

Size is 9mm for all. If not that size then the caliper has been changed and a funky size was used, so it could be anything. Try to use a 6 point socket or box end wrench as compared to a 12 point to reduce the chance of round off the shoulders of the bleeder. Soaking the bleeders with a quality penetrating oil will help - especially if the bleeders have not been cracked open in a while.

I have just checked with several different wrenches and I have found the front bleed nipple screws are 11mm.
will check the rears tomorrow.
