Default Spider ID help please

Hi. Just found this one in my house and I'm having trouble identifying.

Body length was around 7mm.

Sorry for the poor photo, he's a bit lively.

I'm not as clued up as I would like to be on the spiders residing in the UK, but to me it looks like a very pretty spider that would build orb webs

Maybe it ate him because he never came back to post again.

Sorry to disappoint you but I haven't been eaten by it yet.
Just been busy at work.

Thanks for your help.

After doing a bit more research I think Emma is correct and it is metellina segmentata.

Well if Emma is correct and not me I hope it does eat you.

Twice.
