Mum-of-22 Sue Radford urges Chloe to live with boyfriend before buying a house together – as siblings bid for her room

BRITAIN’S biggest family has got slightly quieter now that Chloe has moved in with her boyfriend – and mum-of-22 Sue Radford said the 18 kids left at home have been bidding for her room.

Speaking on their YouTube channel, Sue said there had been “bedroom wars” now that Chloe had vacated hers. 

She said: “We’ve had bedroom wars between Katie and Luke. 

“We decided Katie was probably better having as there is four in that bedroom and only James and Luke in the bedroom at the front.”

Sue and Noel are parents to Chris, 32, Sophie, 27, Chloe, 25, Jack, 24, Daniel, 22, Luke, 20, Millie, 19, Katie, 18, James, 17, Ellie, 16, Aimee, 15, Josh, 13, Max, 12, Tillie, 11, Oscar, nine, Casper, eight, Hallie, five, Phoebe, four, Archie, three, Bonnie, two, and Heidie, one.

Sadly the couple's 17th child Alfie was still born on July 6, 2014.  

Sue also said that she urged Chloe to take things slow with boyfriend Jake, and to live with him and his mum before buying a house. 

Sue said: “Last weekend when we were away in Center Parcs Chloe moved in with her boyfriend which was a big deal.

“She wants to get a mortgage but I said instead of jumping in and getting a mortgage together before you’ve lived together, please live together and see if you like each other and get on really well.

“It’s a big deal if you then realise actually living together you don’t get on too well.”

Chloe, 25, was the eldest of the 19 children of Noel, 50, and Sue, 46, still living in their 10-bed home in Morecambe, Lancashire.

Sue and Noel’s first two kids, Chris, 32, and Sophie, 27, had already moved out to start their own families.

Make-up artist Chloe announced on Instagram: “Few drinks to celebrate LIVING together!”

Tagging Jake, she added: “…might need something a bit stronger than a pint.”

This comes as Sue and Noel have announced they are expecting another grandchild.

The new baby, who will be born to Chris, will be their seventh grandchild.

Currently Chris has two children, Maisie, three, and Jacob, one, and the excited dad posted the announcement on Instagram, saying his baby is due in September.

He shared a photo of the baby scan, and wrote: “So that’s baby number 3 cooking nicely another little boy.”

Sue and Noel’s other grandkids are Daisy, eight, Ayprill, six, and Leo, five, who were born to their daughter Sophie, 27, and her husband Joe Broadley.

Their daughter Millie, 19, gave birth to baby Ophelia in September, and she still lives in the family’s home in Morecambe, Lancashire. 

Earlier this year, Chloe admitted she only wants "three kids max" after growing up as one of 22.

Sue and Noel revealed how excited they are for the new baby, posting on their main account: “Another beautiful grandson on the way.”

Sue has insisted she will not be having any more kids, after Heidie was born in lockdown last April. 

The couple, who support themselves with their family pie shop business and don’t rely on benefits, estimate they’ve spent over £1million raising their bumper brood.

Full-time mum Sue also has her work cut out for her at home with all the kids- and spends hours every day tidying the house and doing multiple loads of washing.

Sue revealed how their weekly food bills have boomed by more than £100 to total £400, with the majority of their brood stuck at home in lockdown.

The Radfords use 16 pints of milk and four loaves of bread a day, and each week they go through 80 yoghurts, three tubes of toothpaste and 24 toilet rolls.

And if sausages are on the menu that evening, Sue will need to ensure she puts a staggering 56 under the grill.

Sue also revealed that fajita night includes a staggering 5kg of chicken, 1kg of cheese and four packets of tortilla wraps.

What's more, Sue estimates that the family have celebrated 288 birthdays over the past 31 years.

And mum-of-22 Sue Radford was stunned after Hallie, 5, gave her sister Phoebe, 4, a disastrous DIY haircut in latest lockdown drama.

Plus Britain’s biggest family the Radfords gave fans an update on their home renovation including colour-changing bedroom lights.
