Justin has 1 brother and 3 sisters. On Justin's House (Episode 9 of 25 - "Just the Part") he has mentioned his mother's name as being Sheila.
While studying drama at the Guildford School of Acting, in his final year he started to watch regularly Phillip Schofield in the BBC1 broom cupboard with Gordon the Gopher, and decided that a career in children's television was for him.
