Hi,

Can anyone ID this for me. I thought it was an aluminium plant or Pilea when I bought it but when I google care for that it looks very different!

Hi SpamAllan, Welcome!
I agree with tofitropic, your plant appears to be Baby Rubber Plant (Peperomia obtusifolia 'Variegata')

That looks right. Thank you so much! Now I can try to find out why it's leaves are falling off!

Thanks again.
