Asked by German newspaper Bild am Sonntag if other member states would follow the UK’s example in quitting, Juncker said: “No. Britain’s example will make everyone realise that it’s not worth leaving.”

He added: “On the contrary, the remaining member states will fall in love with each other again and renew their vows with the European Union.”
