Jean Claude Juncker will consider an extension if the UK requests one.

The European Council President says he hopes the UK will return to the EU one day.

It comes after a new withdrawal agreement was reached between the EU and Boris Johnson.

It will be put to a vote in the House of Common

s tomorrow - though it looks set to fail after the DUP pulled support.

European Council President Donald Tusk has said even if it's accepted, he'll be sorry to see the UK go.

He also says he will consider a Brexit extension if the UK requests one.

Boris Johnson has to put the revised withdrawal agreement to a vote tomorrow with the numbers seemingly against him.

Meanwhile European Commission President Jean Claude Juncker has said there can be no more delays or extensions.

But Council President Donald Tusk admitted it's something they'll look at if the deal doesn't pass in the House of Commons.

Currently the numbers don't look good for Boris Johnson with opposition parties saying they won't back the agreement.

The UK Labour's shadow Brexit Secretary Kier Starmer says it's worse than Theresa May's deal.
