The parents in Britain’s biggest family might have to feed 22 children – but they still know how to live a luxury lifestyle.
Hardworking Sue and Noel Radford claim to have spent seven-figures providing for their bumper brood over the years.
But that outlay has not stopped them from living a comfortable life – filled with nice cars and glamorous home renovations.
The family are stars of a hit Channel 5 show and post regularly on YouTube, where they have 267,000 subscribers.
But Sue, 46, and Noel, 50, have always avoided benefits, using their popular bakery and pie business to provide for their kids.

So how do they still live a luxury lifestyle, as seen on social media and television?
Loving Noel recently gifted Sue a Range Rover for her birthday – which can cost upwards of £30,000.

“I’m so incredibly lucky to have such an amazing hubby who works so hard for us all.
“I love you @noelradford.”
Sue – who estimates she has been pregnant for 16-and-a-half-years – recently posted a video showing inside the family home.
The top floor 10-bed property in Morecambe, Lancashire has been renovated and now boasts some impressive mod cons.
This includes a posh TV bed for Sue and Noel.
She said: “We’ve just got a new bed basically because the bed we had before was too big for the room.”
Outdoor bar and hot tub
The busy parents used the change of pace in lockdown to transform their garden, adding a hot tub and outdoor bar.
They also added a pizza oven, which Noel said he was in his “element” using.

Pictures on social media show the children enjoying the hot tub – while the parents enjoy the bar.
The well-equipped garden also features a grey outdoor sofa.
The Radfords enjoyed a film night in style last year, setting up a projector outdoors to watch ‘Jurassic World’.
The family sat on sofas and beanbags on the recently renovated fake turf, with fairy lights strung up for atmosphere.
Posting a video of the experience on YouTube, Sue said: “It was so good. I can’t actually believe how good the projector was.
“I would definitely recommend it.”
Sue and Noel still have 18 children living at home – meaning their weekly shop regularly tops £400 in lockdown.
It is estimated that 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.
Sue said: “It’s a huge responsibility having 22 kids. I try not to let it get to me.”
With 24 birthdays a year to celebrate, Sue and Noel have shelled out their fair share of cash over the decades.
And that’s not including Christmas or other special occasions.
Noel has estimates that he and Sue have spent up to £90,000 on birthday presents since their eldest son was born.
“That’s an insane amount of money,” the mum added.
The children’s ages range from 31 to one.
