Their 17th child Alfie was stillborn.

Sue and Noel have previously said they are proud of the fact that they keep their family going without relying on benefits.

Instead, the stars of the Channel 5 series 22 Kids and Counting look after their whopping clan with the proceeds from their pie shop and YouTube channel.

For previous Christmas celebrations, each Radford child has around £100-£250 spent on them, costing their parents over £5,000 in gifts.

To make sure there are no mix-ups on the day, Sue has bought each of them a personalised sack to keep them all in.

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.
