If a GE returned figures like that the vagaries of FPTP would make it an absolute lottery. The only rider I would add is that Brexit would most likely do significantly worse that it's percentage figure might suggest simply because they have no established seats to defend. They would fail to benefit from any kind of tactical vote. The big winners there would likely be the Lib Dems with Labour, and possibly some Tory Remainers being prepared to support them against the other big two party where the seat was held by that party.

I think that we may well be likely to on the brink of an LD breakthrough this week. We were out to dinner last night with friends who always vote Tory. Talked turned to the imminent elections and all four agreed that our votes will be heading LD wards.
