Earlier today the Guardian Live Blog reported "Jeremy Corbyn drops threat of motion of no confidence in PM after she names date for vote on her Brexit deal." That just changed moments ago.

Corbyn Statement

It’s very clear that it’s bad, unacceptable that we should be waiting almost a month before we have a meaningful vote on the crucial issue facing the future of this country.

The prime minister has obdurately refused to ensure a vote took place on the date she agreed, she refuses to allow a vote to take place this week and is now, I assume, thinking the vote will be on January 14 - almost a month away.

This is unacceptable in any way whatsoever.

So, as the only way I can think of ensuring a vote takes place this week, I’m about to table a motion which says the following: ‘That this House has no confidence in the prime minister due to her failure to allow the House of Commons to have a meaningful vote straight away on the withdrawal agreement and framework for future relationships between the UK ad European Union.’

That will be tabled immediately, Mr Speaker.

Second Vote Coming

"Asked if May is saying that, if her deal is voted down, she will definitely proceed with a no-deal Brexit, May says that the process she will follow is set down in legislation (ie, the government will make a statement and allow MPs to vote)."

The first vote undoubtedly will not pass. May will then lecture the MPs and schedule a second vote.

If the second vote is close, the EU will make some wishy-washy non-binding statement and there will be a third vote.
