Could be Mrs Popple if its hardy but there are a million fuchsias in the purple/ magenta range. I'd call it Maurice.

It's really pretty, whatever it is called.

Not Mrs Popple, colours not strong enough and flower not the right shape. However, not sure what it is. Sorry not to be much help but will think and come back if inspiration strikes!

As I so often say. Attempting to identifying plannts of various genera, is most difficult.  Your fuchsia definitely is not Mrs Popple.  I have grown hundres of them.  Might I suggest.  Take a branch from your plant, with a good flower, to wherever you bought it.  Tell them when you bought it etc.  They will then be able to search their records an narrow down the list.

Could it be Kim Joiner?

Cant take it back Mike bought it online,after hours of seaching think it might be Sophie louise.

I thought it might be Florence May Joiner, but it all depended on how old the flower is, and the size etc of your plant, however, I must agree with Lisa J it is a lovely specimen.

Tom Thumb maybe?

Sorry, no not Tom Thumb, his petals not so long and pink, Tom's colouring similar to the afore mentioned Mrs Popple! Plus this one seems too big, maybe a point of reference would have been useful on the photo, a coin, or a ruler, to aid identification?

Relying on my my books etc.  Sorry to say.  None of the given suggestions fit the bill.  In fact, there are someting like two thousand new varieties introduced each year.  Even to the 'big experts'  Quite often there develops controvercy over names etc, as there are so many and so many have very little difference.  Can you recall the magazine or whatever, you obtained it from.  Mind you.  The commercial market often sends out specimens under the wrong name.  However, yes it is a very attractive flower.
