BRITAIN’S biggest family has to regularly find ways to keep their large brood entertained, and one of their current favourite toys is an epic shaded frog paddling pool.

The best thing about the garden item is that it only costs £14.99 and is perfect for cooling down in the recent heatwave.

Mum-of-22 Sue, from Morecambe, Lancashire, posted a photo on Instagram of the pool being used in the garden of their 10-bedroom home. 

She wrote in the caption: “Heidie and Ophelia are loving the paddling pool.

“I totally forgot I bought this last year till I found it in my wardrobe last week.”

The garden toy appears to be the Frog Shaded Play Pool from Very, and there are still some pools in stock.

The website description says: “The soft floor also inflates for extra comfort, and the fun animal design ensures they'll have hours of fun splashing around in the garden! 

“Quality-tested, it also features an inflatable shade to provide added protection from the sun's rays.”

The Radfords have been making the most of the recent hot spell of weather by enjoying their swanky hot tub.

Sue shared snaps of her large brood soaking up the sun as she fired up their BBQ.

Her bumper family could be seen happily playing in the hot tub, with Sue captioning a photo of the kids “loving life”.

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. 

The family famously don’t rely on benefits, but support themselves with the family’s pie business.

People praised Sue for ensuring the kids had a fun bank holiday, with one writing: “I don’t know how you do it all Sue.”

Another added: “You’re amazing Sue.”

The Radfords have been thoroughly enjoying lockdown easing, and last week headed to Alton Towers theme park.


They also went on a big family holiday to Center Parcs a few weeks ago.

Sue – who has been pregnant for more than 16-and-a-half YEARS of her life – welcomed her 11th daughter with husband Noel in April last year.

Noel and Sue say they have already spent over £1MILLION raising their bumper brood.


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!”

With 17 of their children still living at home, Noel is 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!”

For more Radford Family stories, Millie Radford gave a peek at Radfords’ access-all-areas TV show from £400 food shops to using 16 pints of milk a day.

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.
