Does anyone know what this plant is please?

Sorry about the fuzzy pic! The plant appeared a few weeks back in a wooden plant holder that had fuschias in. Its about 14" tall, long, thin leaves and pretty, unusual, pale pink flowers.

As pics a bit blurry, would suggest you google himalayan balsam.

It's definately not Himalayan balsam, the flowers are completely different, it's much shorter and leaves smaller

Thank you Daintiness, I looked it up and yes you're right .......but no such thing as a weed, only a plant in the wrong place     It's very pretty.
