Britain’s biggest family’s huge Christmas Day feast – and their ‘near disaster’

Britain's biggest family the Radfords have shared their HUGE Christmas food shop ahead of their festive feast tomorrow.

Pregnant mum-of-21 Sue and husband Noel have bought a whopping 170 items to feed their clan on the big day, including mouth-watering cakes and copious amounts of snacks.

Their fridges are now bursting with items – but with a lot of mouths to feed they won't stay full for long.

Sue, 44, and dad, Noel, 48, who live in Morecambe, Lancashire, and are expecting baby number 22 next year, had their goods home delivered from Asda yesterday.

However, Noel admitted in a YouTube video posted today, that they could be facing a "vegetarian Christmas dinner " as there was no sign of the all important turkey, beef and pigs in blankets, which they ordered from a butchers last week.

But they have plenty of other tasty treats to tuck into, as well as booze and fizz to toast the occasion.

And Noel will be treating the family to gammon for their Boxing Day dinner.

Meanwhile, the Radfords first found fame in 2012 when their lives were the focus of a Channel 4 documentary called 15 Kids and Counting.

Baby Bonnie was the last addition to the brood in November bringing the number of children to a whopping 21.

She arrived after a swift 12 minute labour weighing 8lb 4oz – and the couple, who have been having children for three decades, vowed she would be their last and had completed their family.

However, they are now expecting another baby girl in the new year.

They live with the majority of their kids in a 10-bed, four-storey Victorian property, a former care home, which they bought almost 15 years ago.

Sue and Noel run their own pie business and do not claim extra state benefits.

Some of the oldest offspring have since moved out and started families of their own with Sue and Noel being grandparents to four.

The Radford children are: Chris, 30, Sophie, 26, Chloe, 24, Jack, 23, Daniel, 21, Luke, 19, Millie, 18, Katie, 16, James, 15, Ellie, 13, Aimee, 13, Josh, 12, Max, 10, Tillie, eight, Oscar, seven, Casper, six, Hallie, four, Phoebe, three, and Archie, two, and Bonnie, one.

Bonnie had the same due date as Alfie who was stillborn in 2014.

After Archie was born, the couple said it was "strange" knowing he would be their last.

And when the entire family appeared on ITV's This Morning in January 2018, Sue said: "Archie is definitely going to be the last Radford baby."

But eldest daughter Sophie, who has three kids herself, shook her head and claimed she "can't see her mum stopping" – and she wasn't wrong as months later Sue fell pregnant with Bonnie.

Childhood sweethearts Sue and Noel's first child, Chris, was born when Sue was aged just 14.

The parents were both given up for adoption after they were born, and they decided to keep Chris and raise him as teenage parents.

They got married and had their second child, Sophie, when Sue was 17.

Noel even had a vasectomy, later reversed, after baby number nine.

The pair face a monumental task each day just to feed, clothe and ferry about their huge brood.

They spend an estimated £30,000 a year of their own money bringing up their children – including birthdays with a reported budget of £100 per child and Christmas at £100 to £250 per child.

In addition, they also have a holiday abroad each year.

And as we previously revealed, the family keep their home immaculate – as they proved in a house tour of their 'gorgeous' home.

Sue has also given her kids' rooms a Christmas makeover – and people love it.

The family yesterday shared a tear-jerking photo of tragic Alfie's decorated grave too.
