Have to agree with the expert!

It's definitely Mallow, and clearly not common Mallow, Malva sylvestris, as the leaves are the wrong shape. (they would be more palmate.)

I would have said "garden escape" , and would have chickened out of trying to ID to species, but I am perfectly happy to accept Stewart's ID!
