Inside Britain’s biggest family’s epic Center Parcs weekend as mum-of-22 Sue surprises kids with bank holiday break


BRITAIN’S biggest family are celebrating the bank holiday in style on a huge fun-filled break at Center Parcs.

Mum-of-22 Sue Radford shared a clip on their YouTube channel revealing the surprise trip to their large brood – to shrieks of delight.

The large family, who support themselves with their family bakery and don’t rely on benefits, could be seen loading up the car for their action-packed break this weekend.

Sue, from Morecambe, Lancashire, said: “We have something very exciting planned for this weekend and the kids know nothing.

“I’m frantically trying to get everything sorted out. I’ve got a mountain of washing to put away.”

Gathering her whopping family together in the lounge, Sue told them: “Guess where we are going this weekend? Holiday!”

Unsurprisingly, the kids seemed overjoyed at the news and were seeing dancing round the lounge in happiness.

Once they arrived at their Center Parcs lodge, the family wasted no time in exploring their woodland cabins and riding on scooters.

Noel added: “Kids have enjoyed playing out, they’ve been playing out until about 9pm tonight and worn themselves out.

“Finally gone to sleep so hopefully we might get a lie in in the morning you never know.

“I think tomorrow we might try and hire some bikes and get out on them for the day, which will be fun.”

The Radford family is getting even bigger, as Sue and Noel have announced they are expecting another grandchild.

The new baby, who will be born to the couple’s eldest child Chris, 31, will be their seventh grandchild.

Sue, 46, and Noel, 50, are parents to Chris, 31, Sophie, 27, Chloe, 25, Jack, 24, Daniel, 22, 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, Bonnie, two, and Heidie, one.

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

Sue has insisted she will not be having any more kids, after Heidie was born in lockdown last April. 

The couple, who support themselves with their family pie shop business and don’t rely on benefits, estimate they’ve spent over £1million raising their bumper brood.

Reflecting on this eye-watering figure, Noel said: "I try not to think too much about what it costs. What could I have had instead?

"A nice flash car. A Porsche on the driveway."

Meanwhile, Sue joked: "We could have been living in a mansion!”

With 18 of their children still living at home, Noel is under pressure to provide for his enormous family through his pie shop business.

He said: "It’s about £30,000 just to keep the house going and feed everybody. So it’s a lot of pies we’ve got to sell to support us all!

"It’s a huge responsibility having 22 kids. I try not to let it get to me."

Although Noel was forced to close the pie shop at the start of the pandemic, his second eldest daughter Chloe suggested they take the business online – and since then, sales have more than doubled.

Full-time mum Sue also has her work cut out for her at home with all the kids- and spends hours every day tidying the house and doing multiple loads of washing.

Sue revealed how their weekly food bills have boomed by more than £100 to total £400, with the majority of their brood stuck at home in lockdown. 

The Radfords use 16 pints of milk and four loaves of bread a day, and each week they go through 80 yoghurts, three tubes of toothpaste and 24 toilet rolls.

And if sausages are on the menu that evening, Sue will need to ensure she puts a staggering 56 under the grill.

Sue also revealed that fajita night includes a staggering 5kg of chicken, 1kg of cheese and four packets of tortilla wraps.

What's more, Sue estimates that the family have celebrated 288 birthdays over the past 31 years.
