The family, including mum and dad Noel and Sue Radford, include 22 children, 19 of which still live at the family home in Morecambe. Viewers tuning in to the new series of Channel 5’s 22 Kids and Counting found the show as eye-opening as ever, especially when it came to how the family goes about cooking breakfast for the whole clan.

Noel, 51, usually treats everyone in the house to a traditional fry-up on a Saturday morning.

As he began to cook, he admitted: “It’s a slow job is this, breakfast for everyone.

“It seems to take forever.” With so many mouths to feed, the average price to buy ingredients for a Full English breakfast to feed the whole family is more than £50.

It also includes 48 sausages and almost four kilograms of beans and tomatoes.

The Radfords also go through eight liters of juice during a typical breakfast.

“I’ll have to do beans and tomatoes in two pans today,” Noel continued.

He added: “I’m cooking eggs this way, (all at once) it’s just much easier to do them all in one big tray.

“What we enjoy the most about a big family is just being surrounded by the kids all the time – fun, laughter, happiness.”

Sue, 46, added: “Watching the kids interact with each other and the friendships and bonds that they have as well, it’s so lovely to watch.”

Daughter Amy, 15, is the 11th child of the huge family.

She commented: “For me, living with a big family is normal because I’ve grown up with it – but I love it.”

As they all tucked in to eat, Sue and Noel had to find another room to dine in.

“There’s no room left at the table, so we’re sat up here,” Noel explained.

He added “The next stage is tidying up after them all, some of them help clear the table, the rest of them just disappear.

“But it’s generally us two and one or two others that are left to tidy up, isn’t it?

“It does sometimes feel like we’re running a restaurant at home.

“This is hard work actually.” Just one family meal at the Radfords’ is enough to fill a whole dishwasher with crockery.

Twitter user capturetheloss wrote: “Could the older kids help out cooking so that they get the food done quicker? #22kidsandcounting.”

Aiden penned: “Imagine living next door to them #22kidsandcounting.”

Sara joked: “They use a lot of food and it costs a lot to feed them? Who’d have thought it?”

“Anyone else thinking about the amount of laundry? Or just me. Christ i am getting old. #22kidsandcounting,” Liam T shared. (sic)

Later in the programme, the parents gathered the family together to inform them of an important announcement – they’d decided they would be having no more children.

22 Kids and Counting continues next Wednesday at 9pm on Channel 5.
