Is it dangerous? I saw it crawling around in my house yesterday and thought it was just some dirt on the floor but today I saw it closely and it was a freaking spider, it scared the life out of me at first because it's a lot bigger than it looks.

Assuming you're in the UK, a large spider in a house is just gonna be a Tegenaria species (the house spiders).Worst case scenario, it's a false widow. Those can give a nasty bite if you attack them but you couldn't exactly call them dangerous. The UK has no genuinely dangerous species.

Oh, this is most likely Scotophaeus blackwalli, the common mouse spider. They can deliver a painful bite if you grab them in your hands. No danger whatsoever though.

It's not large, it's just looks large to me. It's not tiny either.

Looks like a wolf spider, hobo spider, or a common mouse spider.

All are fine and wont harm you if you leave them alone

Ok so I showed this to one of my parents and they said it looks very likely its egg bound (or just had a tasty meal) so could lay the eggs and hatch? :afraid: no idea what spider it is though OP
