Britain’s biggest family The Radfords put first Christmas tree up after revealing they spend £5,000 on gifts for 22 kids

CHRISTMAS has arrived in the household of Britain’s biggest family, The Radfords. 

Mum-of-22 Sue, 46, from Morecambe, revealed to fans that she has put up the first of their many Christmas trees.


In previous years, the Radfords have had as many as seven trees around their 10-bedroom home as part of their festive celebrations and fork out £5,000 on their kids’ presents.

In 2020, as well as their trees in their lounge, kitchen and front porch area, Sue placed colourful ones in four of her kids’ rooms. 

Recently, Sue got in the festive spirit as she eyed up £60 Christmas train decoration and GIANT toadstools for their home.

Sue and Noel are parents to Chris, 32, Sophie, 27, Chloe, 26, Jack, 24, Daniel, 22, Luke, 21, Millie, 20, Katie, 19, James, 18, Ellie, 16, Aimee, 15, Josh, 14, Max, 12, Tillie, 11, Oscar, 10, Casper, nine, Hallie, six, Phoebe, five, Archie, four, Bonnie, three, 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. 

Noel and Sue always go the extra mile to ensure their ALL kids have a very special Christmas.

But needless to say, this doesn't come cheap.

In previous years, Noel and Sue revealed that they spend between £100 and £250 on each of their children – and a further £300 on their food shop.

So in the months leading up to Christmas, the parents pinch their pennies to save £5,500 to buy the kids' presents.

And while most families simply chuck their presents under the tree when they're wrapped, Sue has a personalised sack for each child so the gifts don't get mixed up – and to save herself having to buy hundreds of tags.

What's more, Noel and Sue also get through a staggering 70 rolls of wrapping paper every year.

Noel also showed how he cooks a 10kg turkey, 7kg of potatoes and sprouts, 50 Yorkshire puddings and litres of gravy.

The couple stay up late peeling potatoes and vegetables at 1am on Christmas Day and children open their gifts by 6.30am.

During the day, the family play separate games of Monopoly, watch films and play with their presents. 

And at least five cycles of the dishwasher are needed to clean dishes.

In the evening, the family eats more food, including six tins of Quality Street.

Unsurprisingly, Sue is a bit of a pro when it comes to gift wrapping and considers herself a "demon wrapper".

According to Mail Online, she can wrap 20 presents in just 15 minutes – and can easily get hundreds of gifts ready in a single evening.



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