Mystery seedling

While managing Bittercress Heath today, I discovered a small shrubby plant that I have not noticed before growing among the heathers. It looks a bit like privet or periwinkle, but I don' think it is either of these. The leaf edges have some very slight crimps, so it could be a Hebe but I am not holding my breath. Whatever it is, I suspect it is not a native British plant.
