I have a lupin growing in a large teracotta pot, but although I water it very frequently it looka as it has been shot at times, all limp and sad, other times it's fine. Should it be in the shade? I have a feeling it could be the heat of the sun that does it. x

It may be - try moving it into the shade and see if that improves matters.

 Lupins are quite fleshy plants and need lots of moisture so hot sunshine can cause them to flop. 

But remember, if it's in the shade it won't need as much water as previously - you don't want to overdo it and make it boggy 'cos then you're creating the perfect conditions for various fungal infections to move in.
