SUE and Noel Radford have revealed the hardest part about being a big family is trying to plan holidays… Despite going on many of them over the past 16 months.
The couple, who share 22 children together, shared their thoughts in a YouTube video they uploaded on 26 June, where they answered a series of questions from their fans.

When one person asked what the most difficult part, Sue shared: “The worst thing I think is just like…”
“House work,” Noel, 52, said, cutting in.
Agreeing with his statement, 48-year-old Sue continued: “Yeah… And washing.
“But no, I think it’s like planning holidays and going out on day trips and stuff and making sure everybody is all together.
“I think that’s probably the hardest part.”
Noel then added: “That and breakfast time… But we’re just used to it, aren’t we?”
This difficulty doesn’t stop them from going abroad though as they’ve gone on a whopping 16 trips.
In 2022 alone, they went on 11 holidays, including New York City, Disneyland Paris, the Maldives.
They’ve also enjoyed some trips in their motorhome – including one they took earlier this year with the family, where they enjoyed the sunshine and “recharged” their batteries.
They’ve also been to Orlando, Florida, three times.
During last year’s Florida trip in April, after escaping the chaos and queues at Manchester airport, the bumper brood were seen making the most of their time in the sunshine state.
In videos shared to the family YouTube channel, the kids enjoyed time splashing about in the pool, tucking into giant hot dogs and visiting Disney and Universal theme parks.
Parents Sue and Noel even managed to gather everyone together for a group snap at Magic Kingdom.
They also made sure to give six of their daughters a trip to remember by forking out over £1,000 on a lavish Disneyland princess experience.
Sharing a sweet snap of the girls dressed in colourful princess dresses on Instagram, Sue penned: “This was just THE best experience ever the girls absolutely loved every second of it.
“Tillie came out gave me a massive hug and said thank you so much mum that was just amazing.”
Sue and Noel are parents to Chris, 33, Sophie, 29, Chloe, 27, Jack, 25, Daniel, 24, Luke, 22, Millie, 21, Katie, 19, James, 17, Ellie, 17, Aimee, 16, Josh, 15, Max, 14, Tillie, 12, Oscar, 11, Casper, 10, Hallie, seven, Phoebe, six, Archie, five, Bonnie, four, and Heidie, three.
