Britain’s biggest family have announced they’re expecting yet another baby, bringing the grand total to 22.

The mother, Sue Radford, confirmed the news in a YouTube clip on Sunday, October 20th, with her husband Noel.

Sue, 44, held up an ultrasound image, telling her followers: "So now you know guys, we're having a baby. We're just coming up to 15 weeks pregnant and we'll be able to find out the gender of the baby soon."

She added that she’s hoping the baby, which is due in April, will be a boy, saying: "I wonder if it will be 11 of each - I am feeling a bit boy".

Sue and Noel live in Morecambe, Lancashire, and fund their large family through a successful family-run bakery business, Radford’s Pie Company - as well as claiming £170 a week in child benefit.

The couple live in a 10-bed home with their family, and every day they consume three boxes of cereal, 18 pints of milk and three litres of juice at breakfast

In total, their weekly food bill comes to around £350, a meal out can set them back over £150, and a trip to the cinema over £100. On top of that, Sue spends 14-21 hours a week tidying the house.

Christmas doesn’t come cheap either, and last year they put away three turkeys, 56 Yorkshire puds, 3.5 kilos of potatoes and a huge amount of veg.

The Radfords previously said their last kid, born in 2018, would be the final one.

They’re already parents to Chris, 30, Sophie, 25, Chloe, 23, Jack, 22, Daniel, 20, Luke, 18, Millie, 17, Katie, 16, James, 15, Ellie, 14, Aimee, 13, Josh, 12, Max, 11, Tillie, nine, Oscar, seven, Casper, six, Hallie, three, Phoebe, two, Archie, 18 months, and Bonnie Raye, 11 months.
