As it stands, Mr Johnson is the leading candidate to take over from Theresa May although he will be challenged by Jeremy Hunt and Michael Gove. According to the Daily Telegraph, the former Foreign Secretary will reaffirm his pledge to take the UK out of the EU on October 31 with or without a deal on Wednesday. However, Mr Johnson will be challenged by a pack of Remain-supporting MPs who will try to kill off a no deal Brexit.

On Wednesday Parliament will vote on a motion to give MPs control of Parliamentary business on June 25 which would enable them to table legislation to block a no deal Brexit.The move comes after Labour tables a motion co-signed by Sir Oliver Letwin to calling on Parliament to suspend the Government’s right to dictate Commons business.Although Parliament has in the past voted against a no deal Brexit, if the motion were passed it would effectively make a no deal scenario illegal.Tory leadership rival, Michael Gove quickly moved to distance himself from the cross-party plans stating that the move should be “resisted”.READ MORE: Brexit analysis: Why no deal will be 'entirely manageable and lead ..'

He added: “While I would prefer to leave the EU with a better deal, we must not rule out no deal.“If ultimately it came to a choice between no deal and no Brexit, I would choose no deal.“Labour’s plans to seize control of the business of the Commons must be resisted.”Following the news, Downing Street refused to say whether Tory MPs would be whipped to vote against the cross-party plan.READ MORE: EU Commission sends stern Brexit warning to future Tory leader

The Remainer plan comes after a new poll which suggests that Mr Johnson could win a landslide victory in a general election if he wins the Tory leadership race.The pool from ComRes showed that Mr Johnson would win a majority of up to 140 seats if a general election were called.Moreover, the poll suggested that if Mr Johnson would to become the next Prime Minister, the Conservative Party’s vote share would increase by 14 percent.If accurate, the result would be a huge boost for the party amid the dramatic surge of Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party.
