Will there still be a no deal Brexit on January 31st 2020?

No. A deal has been agreed and Boris will push ahead with that. The problem before has always been that the House of Commons always votes against any deal, including that one. But now, with a brand new Parliament and a big majority, Boris can put his deal to the Commons again, this time it will be voted for, and we can be sure there will be Brexit on 31 January 2020 on that basis.
That won't be the end of it because Boris's deal includes a transition period for working out a trade agreement, and meanwhile trade carries on as if we were still in the EU. There's a lot to work out. Trade agreements can take years and the transition period may well need to be extended. But for all other purposes, we're OUT on 31 January.
I've been saying this for ages - there have to be TWO deals. First, how do we leave? There is a deal for that already agreed with the EU. Then once there is Brexit, what is the future relationship? That still has to be negotiated and that's what the transition period is for.

Unlikely, but still possible as the Tories now have a large majority and won't have to accept everything the Eu offers.
