Spider ID please (UK) (1 Viewer)

I would be grateful if someone could correct or confirm my ID of this spider that I found out in my garden this morning (East Kent), which I think is probably Noble False Widow (Steatoda Nobilis).
The abdomen was approx 10-11mm from front to rear, and the entire spider was at least the size of a large Garden Cross Spider, so I think it is too big to be S. bipunctata (Rabbit Hutch spider).
Sorry for the rubbish photo but the light was awful when I came across it.
Thanks in advance for any help given.

Thanks Andy, nice to have confirmation. Needless to say it was released into the garden again unharmed.
