WHO ARE THE RADFORD FAMILY?

The Radford family, also referred to as Britain’s largest family, is made up of Sue and Noel Radford and their 22 children.

Sue and Noel’s most recent child is Heidie, who was born last April, with the others Chris, 31, Sophie, 27, Chloe, 25, Jack, 23, Daniel, 21, Luke, 20, Millie, 19, Katie 18, James, 17, Ellie, 15, Aimee, 14, Josh, 13, Max, 12, Tillie, 10, Oscar, nine, Casper, eight, Hallie, five, Phoebe, four, Archie three, and Bonnie, one.

The couple first met when Sue was seven, before having their first child when Sue was 14 and Noel was 18.

They married in 1993 when Sue turned 18, and had nine children before Noel had a vasectomy – which he later reversed.

Unfortunately, Alfie, the couple’s 17th child, was stillborn on July 6, 2014.

The oldest siblings Chris, 31, and Sophie, 26, have moved out of the family home to start their own family.

Meanwhile, daughter Millie, 19, has now been added to the brood with her daughter Ophelia, five months old.

Unfortunately, the couple’s 17th child, Alfie, was still born on July 6, 2014.

Sue and Noel bought their house in 2004 for £ 240,000.

With 22 children living in the former 10-bed nursing home, they’ve done dozens of DIY projects over the years to transform the home, as several siblings grow up sharing rooms.

The family, who first rose to fame in 2014 in 15 Kids and Counting, last starred in Channel 5’s 22 Kids and Counting.

In this year’s four-part series, Sue revealed that she spends £ 400 a year on school uniforms for her nine school-aged children because ‘she doesn’t believe in hand-me-downs’, while the family also says they spend £ 400 a year. week at her food store for the brood.

The family can also often serve 56 sausages for barbecues, while a Mexican leaves 5 kg of chicken, 1 kg of cheese and four packs of tortilla wraps for them.

The family also eats 80 yogurts a week and uses three tubes of toothpaste and 24 toilet rolls.

In the series, the family also welcomed their fifth grandchild, with Sue and Noel revealing that they have spent more than £ 25,000 on strollers over the years.

The couple finances their family thanks to Noel’s cake shop and does not depend on benefits.

They estimate they spent £ 1 million on their offspring before the birth of their 22nd child Heidi, who they said could be their last.

While the new show documents their time in lockdown and the chaos of homeschooling, Sue also shares regular updates on family life through their YouTube channel and Instagram.

Last year, Sue admitted that the usual chaos in her home “couldn’t get worse” as she tried to teach her youngest children during the pandemic.

She said she’s struggling to make sure all of her kids are on track with their schoolwork while keeping the household running.

In a recent YouTube vlog, Sue provided insight into the family’s current morning routine as she fought to “ praise ” all of her kids out of bed and feed them before they have a day of virtual learning on Zoom.

In the video, as Sue tried to prepare breakfast for each child and solve technical problems for one of her children, another asked her about their work, while another began to cry.
