Boris has made it quite clear he will not ask for an extension and, as the bill does not in fact have teeth, nothing will happen when he doesn't. Macron has also made it clear that he will not allow an extension even if one is requested.

So, for an extension to happen, two men known best for their stubbornness and lack of concern for consequences will have to change their minds. That is about as likely as Trump sending a gramattically correct tweet.
