First i used a utility knife to score the caulk all the way around the broken TP holder. Use a hammer and pry bar to remove the old one.

Then I used the knife and cleaned up the drywall chunks just a little. Then take the new one and make sure it fits the hole. You may need to trim some of the drywall.
