Everyone Quite Likes Justin is a sitcom by Justin Moorhouse and Jim Poyser, in which Justin tries to start dating again. But everything seems to have changed since he last tried.

Instead of dating, Justin manages to get embroiled with toy trains, Phantom Of The Opera and a greyhound that will never win a race.

In one version of his life, Justin is a well-known local Manchester radio DJ who is successful, funny and stopped in the street by adoring fans. He's the man who has everything.

In the other version he's a DJ in a slightly shabby local radio station who gets hassled by the occasional nutter on the street.

The truth lies somewhere in between. His wife has left him, taking custody of his eight-year-old son Justin junior, and is in the process of taking him to the cleaners. So he's back on the market, as is his house, leaving him living in his father-in-law's spare room in Bury. The only person who understands him is his Gran, living in luxury in an old folk's home in Warrington.

Despite all this Justin remains positive. Every day is a new opportunity: "When life throws you lemons, make lemonade".
