Mum-of-22 Sue Radford splashes out on lavish sleepover tent for the kids – then gets busy cleaning the hot tub

LIFE can certainly be hectic when you have 22 kids, but Sue Radford finds the time to pull out all of the stops to entertain her bumper brood.

Sue, 46, showed off the lavish garden sleepover tent she ordered for her kids, which came with snack stations and cushions inside.

The igloo was hired by a company for a kids’ sleepover and the girls looked very happy with their “midnight snack” boxes and mattresses.

Another highlight of the family’s garden is their swanky hot tub, and Sue later showed how she was cleaning it out.

Sue, from Morecambe, Lancashire, said she finds the process “therapeutic” and showed off the scrubbed tub looking “lovely and clean”.

Sue and Noel are parents to Chris, 32, Sophie, 27, Chloe, 25, Jack, 24, Daniel, 22, Luke, 20, Millie, 19, Katie, 18, James, 17, Ellie, 16, Aimee, 15, Josh, 13, Max, 12, Tillie, 11, Oscar, nine, Casper, eight, Hallie, six, Phoebe, four, Archie, three, Bonnie, two, and Heidie, one.




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

The family famously doesn’t rely on benefits and is supported by their pie shop business. 

The Radfords, who live in a 10-bed former care home, often show off their millionaire lifestyle on Instagram.

This includes having an outdoor cinema, TV bed, new £6,500 fridge, and a £30,000 Range Rover car.



The family have recently opened their doors for Channel 5’s 22 Kids and Counting show, which documented their lives under one roof. 

In the show, Sue revealed they have spent £1million raising their large brood and she has been pregnant for 16-and-a-half YEARS.

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.

She said: "If I could say the one thing that really does drive me insane in this house, it’s got to be the laundry.

“An average day, I can be doing four to five loads of washing. It's never-ending."

However, the couple did invest in an 18kg industrial-sized washing machine for their basement and Noel treated his wife to a robotic hoover in the first episode of their documentary series.




Unsurprisingly, lockdown has played havoc with the Radford's weekly food shop.

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.
