it looks like purple loostrife, but a very bushy form, do you pinch it out. Linaria purpurea.

Thankyou. No i haven't touched it. I found the plant as a small lone seedling last summer in some weeds, i liked its foliage and the way its stems spread on the ground, so i took it. I didn't expect such lovely flowers and haven't seen the plant in the garden i found it, lucky find!
