With the office Christmas party season now upon us a survey has identified the top Christmas party personalities which appear every year.
It comes as the study by TeamSport found that one in six people are dreading their festive party and 19pc of people even lie to try and avoid attending.
Although 24pc of people think Christmas parties are a good way of socialising with colleagues, many are filled with dread as their usual tea-break buddy transforms into the office flirt after indulging in too many free drinks and festive cheer.
Below are the six personalities which rear their heads at Christmas parties, do you recognise any of them?
The bad dancer: The one who thinks they can dance like Beyoncé after one too many, but actually ends up looking like David Brent.
The lightweight: The person who indulges in one too many Christmas tipples and ends up asleep in the corner an hour into the party.
The drunk boss: The one who usually lets their hair down the most, much to the amusement of the rest of the company.
