The Office is a British mockumentary sitcom first broadcast on UK TV screens in 2001. The programme is about the day-to-day lives of office employees in the Slough branch of the fictitious Wernham Hogg Paper Company.

Ricky Gervais stars in the series, playing the central character, David Brent alongside Mackenzie Crook, Martin Freeman and many more.

With the show concluding in 2003, it’s been more than thirteen years since the employees  of Wernham Hogg appeared on our screens – excluding Brent, who appeared in his own spin-off movie in 2016.

Let’s take a look at what the main cast are up to these days and what they look like.
