After seeing her Brexit Withdrawal deal voted down on Tuesday night, Theresa May faces yet another vote on Wednesday night - this time on her leadership.

Moments after Members of Parliament in the UK shot down her proposed Brexit last night by 230 votes, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn launched the bid to trigger a general election by stating he was to table a motion of no confidence in Mrs. May's Government.

It's expected that she will survive though, with the DUP and members of her party (friends and foes) saying they will back her.

Back home, the Irish Government has said it "regrets the outcome" of  last night's vote, and will consider the next steps with EU partners.

As Theresa May faces the vote tonight, many questions remain about her leadership, the future relationship with the EU, and of course the future relationship with Ireland.
