    Thought it might be some sort of Chenopodiacea but no luck identifying. Any ideas good people? :)

    This looks like a Wandering Jew or Tradescantia zebrina, formerly known as Zebrina pendula, is a species of creeping plant in the Tradescantia genus. Common names include silver inch plant and wandering Jew.

    Ta Lillium,

    Not that I'm afraid, already got one of those. This turned out to be a type of Fat Hen, a chenopodiacea.
