Radford Family enjoys ‘North Pole’ breakfast and advent calendars

Pancakes, pastries and chocolate Santas were on the menu for a festive “ North Pole ’ themed breakfast at the Radfords, Britain’s largest family, to kick off the festive season.

Sue Radford, who has 22 children with her husband Noel, organised a breakfast to welcome Santa’s elves to their huge 10-bedroom home in Morecambe, Lancashire.

Sue and Noel, 50, are parents to Chris, 32, Sophie, 27, Chloe, 26, Jack, 24, Daniel, 22, Luke, 21, Millie, 20, Katie, 19, James, 18, Ellie, 16, Aimee, 15, Josh, 14, Max, 12, Tillie, 11, Oscar, 10, Casper, nine, Hallie, six, Phoebe, five, Archie, four, Bonnie, three, and Heidie, one.

Sue frequently chronicles the lives of her hefty brood on Instagram and Youtube.

In a video shared to the family’s popular YouTube channel, Sue says good morning to her viewers as well as wishing them a “happy first of December”.

She turns the camera around to show that one of her younger children is up early with her, dressed in sweet Christmas pyjamas and putting the finishing touches on a huge tree.

The UK’s biggest family The Radfords were documented enjoying a festive breakfast



All 22 kids tucked into the meal



Sue proceeds to move through the children’s bedrooms, waking them up for them to move out, bleary eyed, to a dining table laden with Christmas cheer.

There are stacks of advent calendars – a different one for each child – as well as Christmas crackers, plates piled with pancakes, fruit and chocolate croissants, and chocolate santas.

In the middle of the table, three toy elves were sitting on a sleigh, which had a balloon attached to it reading: “Special elf delivery to: The Radfords, From: Santa”.

As the kids filter into the Radford’s dining room, chaos ensues. While a couple of the kids seem to have tunnel vision for the candy canes laid on the table, most of them are fixated on the fact Santa has brought three elves with him, one more than in previous years.

One of the older children asked: “Who wants to name it?”, which led to the younger children all shouting out suggestions.

Eventually, the clan decided on the name “Sprinkles”.

The Radfords’ home was decked out with Christmas decorations



The kids get stuck into their choccy milk, Christmas crackers and their breakfast, while Sue moves around the table handing out their respective advent calendars, which appear to be tailored to each child’s taste.

They range from a Body Shop advent calendar for one of the older girls, to a gourmet truffle advent calendar for Sue and Noel to share.

Eventually Sue moves away from videoing the joy around the breakfast table to do a one-on-one chat with the camera about what else had been going on that morning.

In a segment occasionally interrupted by a crying child and a pooch beside her on the couch, she talks about one of the kids’ PE days as well as a panic over not being able to find Hallie and Phoebe’s school trousers.

Each of the Radford children received their own advent calendar



With the older kids having left for school, Sue then moves around the home showing some more festive scenes, including a Santa sack for each of her children, hanging across a fire place.

Sue and Noel Radford 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.

The sheer logistical enormity of running the Radford family has made them popular and captivating watching.

Recently Sue showed off her home after she and her partner Noel put trees up in their living room, kitchen and on their front porch to feel the festive spirit.

Pancakes and pastries were on the menu for breakfast



She wrote on Instagram : “Christmas has landed in the Radford house.”

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.

The Radfords have Christmas food to budget for too, with just the festive food costing another £300.

Britain’s largest family recently welcomed a brand-new addition to their already huge family, as Sue announced that her eldest son Chris has become a father for the third time.

Sue and Noel recently claimed that they have spent more than £1 million raising their 22 children.
