Britain’s largest family, the Radfords, show Christmas through the ages, from £5,000 gift stacks to a roast for 22 kids

IF you think your Christmas is going to be a major operation, think about Sue Radford, mother-of-22.

Sue, 46, and Noel, 50, from Lancashire, are parents to Britain’s largest family, and revealed what the chaotic festive day has looked like over the years.

The proud parents reportedly spent a whopping £5,000 on gifts each December

One thing that comes as standard every year is mountains of gifts for their tailgaters.

In a recent YouTube video, Sue shared their lounge decked out with gifts in 2018, 2019 and 2020.

She wrote, “Take a celebratory walk through memories with our Christmases from years past.”

Noel and Sue always go out of their way to make sure ALL the kids have a very special Christmas.

But needless to say, this isn’t cheap – and the proud parents reportedly spent a whopping £5,000 on gifts each December and another £300 on their grocery store.

In previous years, Noel and Sue have revealed that they spend between £100 and £250 on each of their children.

So in the months leading up to Christmas, parents are pinching their pennies to save £5,500 to buy the kids’ presents.

And while most families simply toss their presents under the tree once they’re wrapped, Sue has a personalized bag for each child so the presents don’t get mixed up — and save herself having to buy hundreds of labels.

In addition, Noel and Sue get through as many as 70 rolls of wrapping paper every year.

Noel also showed how to cook a 10kg turkey, 7kg potatoes and Brussels sprouts, 50 Yorkshire puddings and gallons of gravy.

The couple stays up at 1am on Christmas Day to peel potatoes and vegetables and kids open their presents at 6:30am.

During the day, the family plays quirky games of Monopoly, watches movies, and plays with their presents.

And it takes a minimum of five dishwasher cycles to clean the dishes.

In the evening, the family eats more food, including six cans of Quality Street.

Unsurprisingly, Sue is a bit of a pro when it comes to gift wrapping and considers herself a “demon wrapper”.

According to Mail Online, she can wrap 20 gifts in just 15 minutes — and can easily prepare hundreds of gifts in one evening.

The family is known not to be dependent on benefits and is supported by their pie shop.

The Radfords, who live in a former 10-bed care home, often show their millionaire lives on Instagram.

This includes having an open air cinema, a TV bed and a £30,000 Range Rover car.

The family recently opened their doors to Channel 5’s 22 Kids and Counting show, which documented their lives under one roof.

On the show, Sue revealed that they’ve spent £1million raising their big brood and she’s been pregnant for 16-and-a-half YEARS.
