Inside the 10-bed home of Britain's largest family where the Radfords live with their 19 kids

LIFE certainly must be chaotic when you live in the home of Britain’s largest family. 

Sue and Noel Radford, from Morecambe, Lancashire, have 22 kids and squeeze their large brood into a 10-bed former care home. 

The home is spread over four storeys, with many of the kids sharing a room together.

The busy parents, who support themselves with a bakery and don’t rely on benefits, currently have 19 of their kids living under their roof – which can’t have been easy during lockdown. 

This includes Millie, 18, who is currently pregnant and expecting her first child in September. 

The other kids that live in the house are Chloe, 24; Jack, 22; Daniel, 20; Luke, 19; Katie, 17; James, 16; Ellie, 15; Aimee, 14; Josh, 12; Max, 11; Tillie, 10; Oscar, eight; Casper, seven; Hallie, four; Phoebe, three; Archie, two, Bonnie, one; and baby Heidie.




Little Heidie was born during lockdown on April 3. 

Meanwhile, their eldest kids Chris, 30, and Sophie 26, have flown the nest, although frequently feature in the family’s videos and photos. 

Sadly the couple’s 17th child, Alfie, was stillborn on July 6, 2014.

The Radfords have racked up thousands of fans thanks to their popular YouTube channel and Instagram page, and often offer a sneak peek inside their fun-loving home. 

The pad now has its own bar, hot tub and outdoor cinema, which were new additions for lockdown and seem to have gone down well with the other family members. 




Earlier this year, the couple embarked on a massive DIY project, transforming their garden, including ditching real grass in favour of artificial lawn, to try and stop their kids from getting muddy in the garden. 

With lush faux turf outside now, Sue revealed she keeps it clean by vacuuming it. 

During lockdown they have also had a water play area for the kids and large bean bags as a seating area. 

Despite being full to the brim, the home is immaculate and well looked after by stay-at-home mum Sue.






When visitors walk through the front door they're greeted by a giant storage unit that holds all the children's coats.

The hallway is cluttered with the family's stuff, with Sue admitting there's "stuff, stuff everywhere".

On the ground floor is their cosy living room; featuring an enormous leather sofa, fireplace and a toy box full to the brim.


Next is the kitchen; with a giant fridge, breakfast bar, oven and dishwasher.

Their dining room has a whopping twelve seats and a highchair around a long table.

On this level there is also a small toilet and a huge shoe storage space, which has been expertly organised by Sue.


The bedrooms are spread over the first, second and third floor, with Noel and Sue's room, which has a bed with a crushed velvet headboard, dressing table and stylish wooden beams on the ceiling, on the top floor. 

In the hallway of the basement is a treadmill, which Sue jokes her husband bought during a "midlife crisis".

There is a laundry room featuring Sue's prized possession: a 18kg washing machine.




She says: "I love this washing machine, it's amazing. As you can see it's on, it's always on."

Nine loads of washing are done each day, using 30 bottles of washing liquid every month and the family uses four toilet rolls per day.

The house's only spare bedroom is in the basement, currently being used as a make-up room by Chloe.

In other news, yesterday the Radfords revealed the chaos of going on a huge family walk during lockdown.

And Sue revealed the £30 grey paint she uses to achieve her Mrs Hinch style home.
