The mum of Britain’s biggest family is set to spend £5,000 on Christmas gifts for her 22 children this year.
Sue Radford, 46, said the family has put up their first Christmas tree to decorate their home in Morecambe, Lancashire.
Last year, the mum and her partner Noel put trees up in their living room, kitchen and on their front porch to feel the festive spirit.
For previous Christmas celebrations, Sue said she spent £5,000 on gifts, splashing out between £100 to £250 each on the kids, the Daily Star reports.
Sue also bought a personalised Santa sack for each child so that the presents do not risk being mixed up.
Sue hand wraps each gift she buys and it has previously been reported she can wrap around 20 presents every 15 minutes.
She and Noel get through around 70 rolls of wrapping paper each year to cater for their massive brood.
The couple once revealed they stay up till 1am on Christmas morning peeling veg and potatoes, ready for their massive dinner.
Noel has previously shown how he cooks the 10kg turkey and 7kg of potatoes and Brussels sprouts.
The Radfords are financially supported by their pie shop business.
When asked if the family were rich during a Q&A on their YouTube channel, Sue said: “Absolutely not, we’re definitely not secret millionaires.
“To me rich would be having the big mansion, the flash cars and quite a few hundred thousand in the bank, to me that would be rich but we are not that.”
They get some money through brand partnerships on social media, but their main source of income comes from The Radford Pie company, located near their family home, which serves fresh, healthy pies to customers across the UK.
Sue and Noel bought their Victorian home – a former care home – for £240,000 back in 2004, and the size of their family has grown considerably since then.
There are currently 19 of their kids living at home as eldest children Chris, 31, and Sophie 26 have now moved out, although they are always around for visits.
Living at home is Chloe, 25, Jack, 23, Daniel, 21, Luke, 20, Millie, 19, Katie, 18, James, 17, Ellie, 15, Aimee, 14, Josh, 13, Max, 12, Tillie, 10, Oscar, nine, Casper, eight, Hallie, five, Phoebe, four, Archie, three, Bonnie, two, and baby Heidie.
Their 17th child Alfie was stillborn in 2014.
The family recently welcomed a new addition after Sue announced that Chris has become a father for the third time.
