Giant house spider, Eratigena atrica. Leave it, they eat the smaller spiders. We name ours, but unfortunately the cats think they are fun smile.

Oh @TheoriginalLEM ours are Frederiks grin.

For years ours have been called Boris. Don't know why. Atm we have 4 Boris running round the house after a shag ( and then be eaten)
The dog likes to flick them in the air and play catch

Yep, horrid house spider. I had a bloody huge one in my bathroom yesterday, having a fight with the false widow spider that has lived behind my window frame for at least two years! (it comes out at night and scuttles off during the day) They were making a kind of rustly spider noise. Worryingly, the house spider has since disappeared.

Apparently this time of year, the ones you see are most likely to be randy males looking for females. Like that makes it any better.
