More than likely a MM Tegenaria gigantea.

They are probably False Widows, if you can get a photo up we'll know for sure but please don't get sucked in by the utter rubbish the media is throwing around about them, they are not "deadly" and will not "eat your legs" unless you are a small insect.

Looks like a house spider to me.

Can I ask however, that in future people take a little more time with photos? You are asking for help, at least provide us with the tools to make it possible.

It is a little disrespectful posting a tiny photo, hurriedly snapped and expecting people to take time from their day to squint at the thing and try to figure out which of the 650 species of UK spider it might belong to (although usually it's one of about 10 super common ones).

Imagine you are sending a photo to a doctor for diagnosis. You wouldn't send him a 25 x 25 pixel image taken from 20ft away.
