Can anyone please identify this? It’s appeared from nowhere and has grown very rapidly. Before I remove it as a weed, I’d like to see if there’s another identification. Many thanks

It looks willowish to me too, it will grow big very quickly so I'd get rid of it ASAP.

It looks like a member of the genus Prunus, to me. It's missing the leaf-like stipules of Salix, and it has Prunus-style glands where the leaf blade joins the leaf stem.

originally i was going to go for a cherry tree sucker then went willow.

Either way it needs to come out.

Yep! Not a good place for any sort of bush or tree.
