Mother-of-22 Sue Radford shares a glimpse into her family’s weekend as they enjoy an egg hunt on a campsite

Sue Radford shared a glimpse into her Britain’s biggest family’s Easter weekend as they enjoyed an egg hunt on a campsite.

The mother-of-22 and her husband Noel, from Morecambe, Lancashire, shared snippets of their supersized family holiday in their motorhome with some of their younger children over the weekend. 

In a snap posted to The Radford Family Instagram page, Hallie, 8, Phoebe, 7, Bonnie, 5, Heidie, 3 and Archie, 6 can be seen running around hunting for Easter eggs.

The children beamed with excitement as they had to fill out a questionnaire, in the hopes of winning some chocolate goodies.

The five children who took part in the egg hunt are the youngest of Sue and Noel’s 22 brood.

They are also parents to Chris, 34, Sophie, 30, Chloe, 28, Jack, 26, Daniel, 25, Luke, 23, Millie, 22, Katie, 21, James 21, Ellie, 18, Tilly, 13, Oscar, 12 and Casper 11.

It comes after Sue revealed that she considered leaving her husband Noel after facing difficulties with their business in the 2000s.

The couple – who are parents to the UK’s ‘biggest family’ with 22 children – had then invested in a location on the high street in bustling Kendal, in Cumbria, to expand their pie shop business.

But an outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease – thought to have cost the UK economy £8 billion overall – hit the country and left the pair devastated.

Speaking to the Mirror, Sue admitted that she struggled to see how their ‘marriage would survive’.

‘There were days when I’d think: “that’s it, I’m leaving the business and Noel, I just can’t do it anymore”,’ she revealed.

‘But our marriage has always been strong – and having the kids kept us right. We stuck together and got through it. It was sink or swim and we chose to swim.’

The couple has also opened up about the difficult time on a previous episode of 22 Kids & Counting, on Channel 5, in March last year.

The parents explained that at the time, they were ‘so proud’ to have their own business in Heysham, Lancashire and ‘wanted to expand’.

They took out a ‘huge’ loan to invest in their thriving dream – only to be slammed with national disaster.

‘To start with it did really well,’ Noel explained. ‘It was doing good – and then not long here – foot-and-mouth hits the country and to be honest I think Cumbria was one of the worst affected areas.’

Cumbria, with some 893 cases, was severely affected by the outbreak, leaving the area devastated.

‘It just killed the tourism,’ Noel added, as the family was plunged into despair.

‘I can’t even describe it, it just caused so much stress,’ Sue revealed. ‘You used to go to bed thinking about the debt, you’d wake up thinking about the debt, you’d wake up during the night thinking about the debt…

‘If anything was going to have caused us to get a divorce, it was this.’
