Britain's biggest family document 22 kids unwrapping presents in Christmas video

Britain’s biggest family The Radfords have unveiled their Christmas video which shows their massive family opening lots of gifts.

Mum-of-22 Sue, can be seen in the YouTube vlog opening presents and receiving a huge gift from her children.

The footage shows enormous piles of presents stacked up in the living room underneath their Christmas tree.

In the cute footage, the large brood of children, all in their dressing gowns, can be seen at the top of the stairs in their busy house packed with bunk beds and children’s toys.

All 22 of the children (including grandchildren) are seen looking super excited about Santa’s visit and speculating about whether he knocked any tiles off the roof.

A scene of seemingly controlled chaos ensues in the vlog, as the massive family is seen tearing into all their presents on Christmas day – while still in their pyjamas.

Nintendos, dollies, crocks, boardgames, necklaces, Lego – the Radford kids got the lot this Christmas.

At one point mum Sue says “you can’t move” as torn wrapping paper piles up and the children excitedly show off their toys.

The charming footage shows Sue and Noel opening gifts from their older children, including a designer jumper, perfume, a box of chocolate – and a rather sizable gift contained in a cardboard box bigger than some of the children.

Sue screams as she reveals inside is a Shark vacuum cleaner.

“How many times have I been saying I wanted a Shark hoover?” Sue exclaims, as she does a little dance and says “thank you thank you” over and over, before embracing her older children.

The video ends with Noel gifting his beloved wife Sue a delightful ring, and she proudly shows it off the to camera to gasps of awe from the rest of the family.

Noel and Sue embrace and share an affectionate kiss as he tells here “it’s a new engagement ring as your other one broke”.

“Noel, it’s absolutely beautiful,” exclaims a breathless Sue.

The Radfords, who regularly document and share their lives with their thousands of followers, proudly posted the 46-minutes-long YouTube video on all their social media channels for their adoring fans.

One fan commented: “You are all so lucky, well done Sue as well xx you deserve it xx glad you all had a great day x x.”

Another wrote: “What a lovely family.., that ring! Wow! They r so lucky to have one another and their lovely kids.. happy Christmas to you all.”

Another commented: “I love how she was so happy about her hoover! 

“I’m not going to lie shark hoovers are the best ! Merry Christmas the radford family! x.”

And another wrote: “I’ve been waiting for this … love how they all are so excited and some get lost in the wrapping paper ha.”

The family has previously spoken about how they set £5,000 aside every year so they can spend between £100 and £250 on Christmas presents for each child.

Noel and Sue say they don’t rely on benefits to support the children, so with bakery being the only source of income and with it having to close so the family can self-isolate after dad Noel tested positive for Covid-19 earlier this month, the Radfords faced a “massive nightmare”.

“It’s the busiest time of the year, you can’t get any orders out and we don’t have any income coming from the shop, so it’s going to hit quite hard quite honestly,” Sue said earlier this month.

Sue, 45, and 48-year-old Noel Radford, from Morecambe, have 22 children and recently became grandparents for the sixth time.

The married couple are parents to Chris, 30, Sophie, 26, Chloe, 25, Jack, 22, Daniel, 20, Luke, 19, Millie, 19, Katie, 17, James, 16, Ellie, 14, Aimee, 13, Josh, 12, Max, 11, Tillie, nine, Oscar, eight, Casper, seven, Hallie, four, Phoebe, three, Archie, two, and Bonnie, one and Heidi Rose, five months.

Their 17th child Alfie was stillborn in 2014.

Daughter Millie became a mum for the first time in September.

The new mum is currently living with her parents – who welcomed their 22nd child earlier this year – and 17 of her siblings in their 10-bedroom house in Lancashire and previously said she does not plan on moving out any time soon.

They first shot to fame in TV Channel Four documentary, 15 Kids and Counting and since then they have regularly fed their fans news about their vast family through TV programmes and their own YouTube channel.

The couple live with 19 of their children in the house which they bought for £240,000 in 2004.

But there was a suggestion that they could leave the three-storey building which was converted from a former care home.

Sue and Noel famously rely on their own bakery business and do not claim any benefits apart from Child Benefit.

Noel recently revealed that the family are due to feature in another documentary about their life, following on from the two previous efforts which were aired on Channel Four.
