DUP leader Arlene Foster believes a no-deal Brexit is now the most likely outcome due to the EU’s stance on Northern Ireland, reports the Observer. The paper says it has seen “an explosive set” of leaked emails “from the highest levels of government”, which show that Ms Foster is “ready” for a no-deal scenario.

Like the Sunday Times, the Sunday Telegraph predicts trouble for the prime minister. The paper reports Mrs May is facing a “growing rebellion” with as many as 63 of her own MPs issuing a “major new challenge to her authority” over her Brexit proposals. Also on the front page is a picture of Princess Eugenie, her new husband Jack Brooksbank and the various bridesmaids and page boys from their wedding on Friday.

Not to worry, prime minister, Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg has kindly offered some words of advice, reports the Sunday Express. Referring to the EU, Mr Rees-Mogg said: “What is the response to a bully? You stand up to a bully.” Like the Telegraph, much of the Express’s front page is also taken up with a picture from Friday’s royal wedding.

According to the Sunday People, serial killer Joanna Dennehy is planning a legal fight to stay in “close contact with her prison lover”. The paper also says that Dennehy “wants the taxpayer to foot the bill” via the use of legal aid.

“Sheikh me out” is the headline on the front page of the Daily Star on Sunday, which leads on a story about a contestant from TV dating show Take Me Out being “wooed” by an heir to a £400m fortune.

As Theresa May prepares for a cabinet meeting on Tuesday and a summit with EU leaders the following day, the Observer asks whether she has run out of Brexit options.

The paper’s political editor, Toby Helm, feels it’s increasingly hard to see where the prime minister can win enough support at home for a deal, even if she gets one in Brussels.

The Sunday Times believes there is still scope for her to pull something out of the bag.

It argues that were she to secure agreement that the length of the time Britain remains in the EU customs union after Brexit is a matter for this country, not the EU, many of the Tory objections would fall away.

The Sunday Telegraph is worried about the prospect of remaining in the customs union – and urges Brexiteers to ask Mrs May to change course.

If Brexiteers do nothing, it says, they will end up sharing responsibility for the “coming debacle”.

The Mail on Sunday calls on MPs to put the country before their careers to find an exit from the EU that will implement the referendum result and keep Britain prosperous and safe.

The Sunday Mirror reports that the prime minister is “within a whisker” of a getting an agreement with the EU on Wednesday.

But it says that if she pulls it off at the summit in Brussels, it will tie Britain to Europe for three more years.

The Sun quotes a south German newspaper that claims a Brexit deal will be rubber stamped on Sunday and be announced Monday.

But, on Saturday night, Downing Street said the report was “100%, categorically untrue”.

The Telegraph predicts that the Islamist preacher, Anjem Choudary, will subjected to the most stringent living conditions ever placed on a British citizen when he is released from prison this week – after serving half his sentence for a terrorist offence.

The Observer reports that he will be barred from travelling abroad without permission and his use of the internet and access to mosques will be limited.

The Sun on Sunday highlights figures that show 17,000 members of the armed forces are clinically obese.

They are said to be piling on the pounds by tucking in to three cooked meals a day.

The Mail describes the figures as shocking – arguing that fat solders are a danger to themselves and the country.

Many of the papers feature the official wedding photographs of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank.

One image includes Sarah, the Duchess of York, standing between the Duke of York and the Duke of Edinburgh.

It may be, says the Sunday Times, an image that puts paid to a quarter of century of speculation about the feud between the Duchess and Prince Philip, while the Sunday Express calls it the picture that puts Fergie back in the royal fold.
