Will the Brexit Party win any seats at the next UK General Election?

Question

The Brexit Party is a Eurosceptic political party in the UK currently led by Nigel Farage. As the name suggests they are generally considered a single-issue party advocating for a swift Brexit on WTO terms (AKA a 'no-deal' Brexit).

The party is, at the time of writing, less than one year old (although can be thought of as the spiritual successor to the UK Independence Party, of which Farage was previously the figurehead). It won the most votes in the UK at the recent European elections - but can that success transfer into a general election where UKIP only ever won one seat? Can the party survive in a post-Brexit political landscape (if such a thing ever comes to pass)? Or will Farage himself finally win a seat at the eighth time of asking?

Will the Brexit Party win any seats at the next UK General Election?

This question resolves positively if the Brexit Party wins one or more seats at the next UK General Election, as reported by the BBC and negatively otherwise. By-elections and defections do not count.

This question should close two weeks before the date of the election, which will be, at the latest, 05/05/2022 but may well be much earlier.
