Wild hops?

These 2 have popped up in the garden, both have rough leaves. I think they’re hops but not sure 🤔

Can anyone help identify and if they are hops is there any benefit keeping them?

    Hmm, the third picture looks like bryony to me.  A poisonous thug. It has a deep tap root that is swollen, a bit like a big turnip.  Get it out now while you can!

    The other two photos seem to be a mix of nettle and possibly a hop. If it turns out to be a female hop, then quite nice.  Otherwise just a vigorous climbing plant.
