The Prime Minister, who lost another vote on Monday night, made the admission in a private conversation while at Chequers on Sunday. According to The Sun, she will consider leaving her role if MPs backed her Brexit deal. Her comments are the first time the Prime Minister has made such a comment.

The source told The Sun: “It’s a three way Mexican stand-off.

“There is a way through all this if everyone jumps at the same time - the Prime Minister, the European Research Group or the Democratic Unionists Party.

“But nobody wants to be the first to move.”

They added: “The problem is we know how Mexican stand offs usually end.”

On Monday, Mrs May’s Government was defeated by 27 votes in the Commons, in a move which saw Parliament take control of Brexit for the day.

MPs will now be able to set the agenda for a series of indicative votes on Wednesday.

These include voting no deal, for a second referendum or cancelling Brexit all together.

During another dramatic day in Parliament, three junior ministers resigned from positions in order to vote against the Government.

In total, 30 MPs rebelled, including George Freeman, Dominic Grieve, Nicky Morgan, Damian Green and Justine Greening.

Mrs May had earlier conceded that her Brexit deal, which has twice been roundly voted down, did not have enough support for a third meaningful vote.

The cross-party amendment by Sir Oliver Letwin, Dominic Grieve and Hilary Benn and signed by 109 MPs from all political parties, was seen as the most significant as it would allow Parliament to seize control of the agenda in the Commons on Wednesday.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn also tabled an amendment calling on the Government to provide Parliamentary time to also debate a range of Brexit options.

These options include Labour's own plan, the Common Market 2.0 proposals, a customs union and a second referendum.

This was pulled just before voting was due to begin.
