Britains biggest familys Christmas Day chaos with mountains of food and gifts

The Radford family home descended into absolute ‘chaos’ as their excited brood took it in turns to unwrap their mountains of presents on Christmas morning.

Carpets were replaced with a sea of wrapping paper as their youngest children ripped open their gifts, which included cuddly toys, headphones and dolls.

Parents-of-21 Sue and Noel pulled out all the stops to ensure their kids had a very special day – and bought a whopping 170 items to feed their clan.

And this time next year, the family will be even bigger as Sue, 44, and Noel, 48, are expecting baby number 22 – a girl next year.

Some of their older children have since moved out the house, however 12 still live at the family home in Morecambe, Lancashire.

The children, wearing festive pyjamas, posed for an adorable photo, with dad Noel even dressed in Christmas pudding pyjamas.

Sue also took to Instagram this morning to share snaps of the children opening their presents.

She wrote: “Merry Christmas everyone. We hope you have the best day ever #bigfamilychristmas #christmas #presents #chaos”.

In the pictures their youngest daughter, Bonnie, one, looked overjoyed as she sat in a small ball pit.

Earlier this week, we reported how Sue had left fans in awe after surprising her children with festive bedroom makeovers.

The bedrooms were transformed into mini-grottos with cute festive bedding on all the beds and a tree which lights up the room.

Above the fireplace of their impressive 10-bedroom home were 22 stockings ready to be filled and then demolished on December 25.

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 last 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.

The family also shared a tear-jerking photo of tragic Alfie’s decorated grave this week.
