It looks like one of those sugar loaf chicories. But I don't think the wild chicory has leaves like that. Maybe in the first year though, someone will know

It would have to be the gardening clothes Philippa

I had a 'mother of the groom' situation earlier in the year and dressing up was torture, even the limited version I chose

We're quick here.

A few more photos, the leave particularly, and lets us know how tall it is. Then we can probably say which malva. 

When it's all gone to seed, if you pull it and it comes out of the ground it's an annual. If it's firmly fixed it's perennial. Malva moschata will be very firmly fixed

I'd do a bit of everything, sow a few now (or when they're brown and ripe) save some to sow in spring and let it seed where it is.

That covers all possibilities.

Those seed pods are Malva rather than geranium. Might be Malva moschata, musk mallow (perennial) or something out of a packet of mixed annuals

Those that write for the papers and mags or perform on the TV I suppose.
