Theresa May has signalled she could hold a third vote on her Brexit plans as the only way to avoid a lengthy delay, after MPs voted to reject No Deal on a dramatic night at Westminster.

The PM’s deal could be put to another vote as soon as next week – despite being defeated twice already – following Wednesday’s fresh humiliation in the Commons, where Remain MPs hijacked her plan to end the immediate risk of No Deal on March 29.

Amid chaotic scenes, MPs voted twice against No Deal as a raft of pro-EU ministers abandoned the PM in a crucial vote and abstained. In the main division, MPs voted 321 to 278 to rule out No Deal.

The new defeats prompted Mrs May to tell MPs they have a week to agree her Brexit deal or face delaying the country’s exit from the EU – potentially for years.

Tonight the Commons will vote on whether to ask EU leaders for an extension to Article 50, but Brussels has indicated it will not automatically agree to the request.

With a new ‘meaningful vote’ looming – just 24 hours after the ailing PM lost the second one by 149 votes – deep splits began to emerge among Brexit hardliners.

The leaders of the European Research Group Jacob Rees-Mogg, Steve Baker and Mark Francois vowed to fight on for a No Deal and defeat Mrs May’s deal for a third time.

But Tory Simon Clarke admitted he and other Eurosceptics may have to vote for the deal ‘with a gun to my head’ if it is brought back for a third time.
