Help identifying climbing plant

Hello all! Hope you are well

I discovered the below plant growing at the back of my garden but after a lot of research, I can't find out what it is - at first I thought honeysuckle, but it would appear not.

Sorry for the terrible pictures, all I have. It climbs with tendrils and the open flower in the picture is about as big as the flowers get - since taking this picture, they have developed fruits - the fruits are currently green and appear like young bell peppers in texture size and shape.

I want to relocate it to a nicer part of the garden, but should probably find out what it is first. Many thanks for the help.

    Eccremocarpus scaber ... the Chilean Glory Flower. Usually grown as an annual in the uk as it can be tender, but my parents had it in their seaside garden on the east coast of Suffolk where it overwintered successfully for many years.

  • That is it! Amazing! I haven't planted it, no idea where it has come from but the stump that the vines are growing out of looks a few years old.

    Many thanks for your help.

    Oh that's interesting - I didn't realise it might overwinter. How lovely!
