Large moth ID

Hi all, I found this beautiful one on the sponge on top of my toilet cistern this morning, scared the life out of me when I realised it wasn't a leaf.

It didn't seem too concerned with me being present so I snapped some photos.
Any ID help would be great :)

Ooooo, never heard of one of those. We do have some very large trees around here (one might be a poplar).

I'll have to keep an eye out for more, thanks very much
