Looks like Steatoda paykulliana.

Nice find 🙂 wish I had some imported spiders in my fruit.
If you’re on Facebook, you culd upload to the ‘UK Spiders’ group, I;m sure a few people would like to see it as they aren;t found here very often.
Is it still alive?
They’re harmless, easily kept as pets in a jar with a stick, fed flies or any small bugs.
Likely it’ll die if released outside, plus non-natives shouldn’t be released if possible.
