BRITAIN’S biggest family the Radfords has waved goodbye to daughter Chloe as she has moved out of their large home and in with her boyfriend.
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.

Parents-of-22 Sue and Noel’s first two kids, Chris, 31 and Sophie, 27, had already moved out to start their own families.
Chloe announced this week she is now living with Jake Wallace.
The make-up artist said on Instagram: “Few drinks to celebrate LIVING together!”
Tagging Jake, she added: “…might need something a bit stronger than a pint.”

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 and Noel are parents to Chris, 31, Sophie, 27, Chloe, 25, Jack, 24, Daniel, 22, Luke, 20, Millie, 19, Katie, 18, James, 17, Ellie, 15, Aimee, 14, Josh, 13, Max, 12, Tillie, 10, 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 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.
The family’s food bill sky-rocketed over lockdown
Reflecting on this eye-watering figure, Noel said: “I try not to think too much about what it costs. What could I have had instead?
“A nice flash car. A Porsche on the driveway.”
Meanwhile, Sue joked: “We could have been living in a mansion!”
Having 18 of their children at home in lockdown, Noel has been under pressure to provide for his enormous family through his pie shop business.
He said: “It’s about £30,000 just to keep the house going and feed everybody. So it’s a lot of pies we’ve got to sell to support us all!
“It’s a huge responsibility having 22 kids. I try not to let it get to me.”
Although Noel was forced to close the pie shop at the start of the pandemic, his second eldest daughter Chloe suggested they take the business online – and since then, sales have more than doubled.

The family’s weekly food shop costs £400
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.
