Browns’ spokesman Paul Hulyer said: “We’ve been hosting Christmas staff parties for nearly 40 years at Browns and despite the changing fads and fashions, we’ve seen just about everything in that time.

“The faces may change as quickly as the music at these staff parties but one thing is constant – the 10 staff party characters who are present.

“Never is that more obvious than at the annual staff Christmas party. These character traits seem common at every staff party we’ve hosted since we were established in the 1970s.

“We reckon everyone can name someone who fits each of these categories our experts have devised.”
