SOLVED: Wondering what this is, should I keep it?

Oxford, United Kingdom

I found this growing in my flowerbed, and left it, thinking it might be a flowering plant worth keeping.

Could anyone identify if it's a weed or not?

I can see some buds forming, as seen in the 2nd photo. There is some lavender behind it.

thank you very much

This looks like Verbascum, wait for the flowers and display once again.

Thanks so much, I will update with a flower picture when the buds open.

Updating with a picture of the flower. What do you think?

I wonder if it could be tobacco (I know there was some tobacco plant in the bed some time ago).

Looks like a Nicotiana to me. I am only familiar with growing Nicotiana alata.

Look at Nicotiana tabacum because if the coloring. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Nicotiana_tabacum_0838.jpg

Verbascum and Nicotiana are relatives
The plant displayed is certainly Nicotiana tabacum
