I have a set of developed colour photos taken using 35 mm film which are double exposed. I must have taken a 2nd set of photos using the used film. Can they be corrected?

No, you can not correct double exposure.

Film exposure is one way street - you can not reverse the process, just like you can not reverse the changes in the silver ion that has been struck by light (or turn omelette back into eggs).
