I think it's called Nicandra or shoofly.

Thanks Carol! Much appreciated.

Hi Andrea,
A lot of agreement on social media too:
"Apple of Peru (Nicandra physaloides) please note it is very poisonous"
"Shoofly plant x"
"Morning glory"
"is an annual that is sometimes grown from seed to add interest to borders.occassional seedlings may appear in the garden (such as from bird-sown seed or seed fallen from a bird feeder), it is sometimes thought of as a weed. It is a member of the Solanaceae or potato family."
"This is a Shoofly plant. Im growing them this year too."
"Me too I grew mine from seed I love them"

Many thanks,
Nicola
