If you didn't spent the entirety of the early noughties watching The Office on your Panasonic telly and wishing you could have a night out at Chasers, you just didn't do it right.

We still spend a frankly embarrassing amount of time watching the BBC show on Netflix, and still maintain it had the best series finale of any TV show ever (Dawn and Tim getting together was surely the most emotional scene of all time).

It won't come as a surprise that the cast had extremely fruitful careers after their stint on the mockumentary. Let's find out what they're up to now.


The Office UK cast: where are they now?

Ricky Gervais (David Brent) then1 of 18

We still haven't got over the horror of David head-butting his new secretary, and we firmly believe that his night out in Chasers may just be the best bit of British television of all time.

David Brent is still very much alive in 2018. Ricky went on to make a spin-off film called Life On The Road, which documented David trying to make it as a singer. Ricky has also written and starred in numerous other films since leaving the show, including Night At The Museum and The Invention Of Lying.

We don't think we've ever rooted for anything as much as for Tim and Dawn to get together, and thankfully they did in the series finale. And we still cry a bit thinking about it.

And here he is today. As you can see, he's very much a silver fox. Martin has enjoyed a hugely successful career since The Office finished, having starred in a number of high-profile films - like Black Panther and The Hobbit.

Lucy Davis (Dawn Tinsley) then5 of 18

Dawn Tinsley, along with Tim Canterbury, was probably one of the most likeable characters in the show, and we were chuffed to bits when she dumped that absolute beast Lee.

These days, Lucy is still acting - and has appeared in films such as Wonder Woman and Postman Pat, as well as numerous TV shows.

Gareth Keenan is debatably the best character of any TV show of all time. And we were over the bloody moon when he landed David's job at the end of the series.

Mackenzie went on to star in films like Pirates Of The Caribbean, and has also appeared in Game Of Thrones and Skins.

Keith, who will very tenderly explain to you that he can guarantee you at least one orgasm, was one of the most iconic characters of the show.

Ralph played David's idol and all round worst-person-in-the-world Chris Finch. He was an absolute shocker, wasn't he?
