The Foreign Secretary said the deal would be even less popular than the one MPs have previously rejected, the Daily Telegraph reported. Mr Hunt fears the cross-party talks could end up alienating Conservative MPs. He went on to question whether Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn was “serious about delivering Brexit”.
Mr Hunt told the Daily Telegraph: “By all accounts, while the talks have been more detailed and productive than we thought and expected, it’s still going to be very difficult to imagine a rose garden moment.
“There is always a danger of doing a deal with Labour that means you lose more Conservative MPs than you gain Labour MPs.
“But I think the essential question is whether Labour are serious about delivering Brexit.”
Mr Hunt added Labour has a “fundamental problem” with Brexit.

He said: “Labour has got hard Remain MPs in large numbers and they’ve got MPs from Leave-voting constituencies in large numbers.
“That is a fundamental problem for Labour in coming to any position on Brexit.”
His comments follow fears Conservatives could suffer huge losses in the local elections this Thursday.
He addressed the “incredibly challenging” issue during his tour of Africa.
Mr Hunt said: “My heart goes out to local councillors who may suffer as a result of politicians in Westminster failing to deliver.”
His Brexit warning comes when Mrs May is facing a Tory leadership contest.
Mr Hunt is a candidate to be the next Tory leader but warned the competition should be delayed until a Brexit deal is passed.
He told the Daily Telegraph: “The process of a Tory leadership election would inevitably involve candidates setting out their red lines which might itself mean that finding a compromise to get Brexit over the line becomes harder.”
