It's beaten me, Colin...maybe if you could get a close up picture of the leaves and flowers, that might help...

It looks as if it could be related to the Money plant...so maybe from the Casulla family!

Dear Colin,
that is one seriously ropey Kalanchoe. If you want to salvage it take some cuttings in a couple of months. After you have cut them off leave them to allow the cut end to callus over; about a week should do then put into some cutting compost with at least 1/4 by volume sand or grit. Don't over water though.
Regards Sally Wright.

Thank you both for your help.
