David Brent is back, and he's as annoying as ever

Britain's least favourite mid-level manager is back.

Ricky Gervais has just unveiled the teaser trailer for Life on the Road, a spin-off film about Gervais' hapless character from The Office, David Brent.

Life on the Road, written, directed and produced by Gervais, is a mockumentary following David Brent's life after leaving his position at Wernham Hogg, the company that plays centre stage in The Office.

Set 15 years on from events in Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant's award-winning TV series, the movie sees a film crew shadowing Brent as he travels up and down the country living his dream of being a rock star with his band Foregone Conclusion.

In this teaser, Brent is back and is already getting on people's nerves, "have you missed me?" he jokes, before a mixup with the word 'cumin'.

Gervais said: "This film delves much more into his private life than The Office ever did and we really get to peel back the layers of this extraordinary, ordinary man."
