Earlier this month, viewers tuning into 22 Kids and Counting at Christmas were left stunned by the Radford’s festive spending.
In the Christmas TV special on Channel 5, Britain’s biggest family were seen preparing for their festive holiday – which included a trip to Lapland in Finland with 13 of their kids.
Not only did Noel and Sue reveal that they spend between £5,000 and £7,000 on Christmas presents each year for their children, they have to prepare an epic feast too.
Noel is in charge of cooking on Christmas Day and admitted: “I quite enjoy cooking Christmas dinner for so many people.”
The food shop consists of many items including a 9kg turkey, a 4kg beef joint and an entire roast goose.
They also purchased 7 kilos of potatoes, 120 pigs in blankets and four bags of Brussels sprouts.
