sharepoint 2013 can't delete BDC service application

I recently tried to patch my farm with the 2017 CU and noticed it failed at the end when trying to update my BDC database. We don't use the BDC service application and it looks like the database for that service app has been inadvertently deleted. I've tried to delete the service application using Central Admin and Powershell, but it times out. Is there a way I can manually remove this so I can successfully patch my farm?

Many thanks,
