WITH 22 kids in tow, you might expect romance to take a back seat in the Radford’s house.
But when it comes to Valentine’s Day Sue and Noel Radford are always sure to get their alone time.

The parents of Britain’s biggest family, from Morecambe, Lancs, operate a strict ‘no kids allowed’ policy when it comes to February 14.
Last year the couple were lucky enough to head out for dinner before the pandemic hit, enjoying a slap up chicken dinner before heading to Kaspas for a chocolate waffle pud.
Sharing a snap of their tasty meal on Instagram Sue wrote: “Lovely valentines meal out with @noelradford ❤️❤️followed by a little trip to Kaspas on the way home.
“Oh my goodness that pudding was sooooo good, little miss is definitely on a sugar rush now ??hope you’ve all had a lovely Valentine’s Day.”

She added the #nokidsallowed, with the husband and wife spending some rare alone time together while the older kids watched the little ones.
In fact the couple are determined to keep Valentine’s Day to a two-person celebration, even when they’re on holiday with their bumper brood.
The family headed to Florida for a family holiday back in 2019, and on February 14 Sue and Noel broke away from the pack.
Noel wined and dined his wife at local bar Miller’s Ale House, with a “lucky” Sue sharing a sweet selfie of them both.

And it seems that the dad-of-22 is always sure to treat his wife wherever they are, previously paying for Sue’s trip to the salon as well as a huge bouquet of flowers.
“Hubby treat me to the hairdressers this morning and now these (sic)” Sue wrote back in 2015, sharing a snap of the gorgeous blooms she had received.
With lockdown still in place, it is likely that the couple will be opting for more low key celebrations this year.
However, if previous years are anything to go by, their kids are sure to give the pair the romantic evening they deserve.
Noel and Sue are parents to Chris, 31, Sophie, 26, Chloe, 25, Jack, 23, Daniel, 21, 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 who was born in April.
Sadly the couple’s 17th child Alfie was still born on July 6, 2014.
In September, their daughter Millie gave birth to Ophelia, and the pair are living under the Radford roof.
In other Radford news, Millie shared a sweet picture of baby Ophelia celebrating her first Christmas.
And the Radfords shared their savvy Christmas tips & how long it takes to wrap presents for 22 kids.
Plus Radfords revealed they use 24 bottles of shampoo & conditioner, 100 pints of milk & do 21 loads of washing each WEEK.
