Just 22% of Brits expect a no-deal Brexit on Friday – poll

Fewer people now expect a no-deal Brexit as the prime minister seeks an extension to Article 50 to avoid leaving the EU without a plan in place, according to a Sky Data poll.

Just 22% of Britons think a no-deal Brexit is likely to happen on Friday, down nine percentage points overnight – 64% think it is unlikely, up nine points.

Half of people (48%) are worried by the prospect of leaving the EU without a deal, while one in three are excited about the idea (32%).

Theresa May will ask EU leaders to postpone Brexit until the end of June at a summit tonight, but they are expected to hold out for a longer delay.

If no agreement to delay Brexit is reached, and the UK chooses not to revoke Article 50 and remain in the EU, Britain will leave the EU without a deal at 11pm on Friday.
