Mum-of-22 Sue Radford shows off her HUGE washing pile after a weekend away and it’s put most off even bothering

A WEEKEND away with the family sure sounds relaxing, until you're faced with a ginormous load of washing once you return.

Perhaps spare a thought for mum-of-22 Sue Radford who has a little more on her plate than the average household, with a washing pile that would take most mums a whole week to get through.

Sue, 46, shared a snap on her Instagram page which showcased the family's huge pile of dirty clothes from their weekend away – and it would put most people off going altogether.

"Had the BEST weekend away but now it's time to deal with this," she wrote on the snap – and we don't blame her for dreading the chore.

It's safe to assume the dirty clothes have accumulated in the laundry of the family's Morecambe, Lancashire home, but to be honest, it's hard to tell as all you see is a mountain of clothes.

And while the trip away may have been fun for the kids, the monstrous washing pile will make Sue want another holiday, stat, just to recover from the never ending chores.

Sue and Noel, 50, 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.

And while the older few have moved out and started their own families, Sue and Noel still have 17 of their children living at home – think of all that cleaning.

Family trips, no matter how short and sweet they may be, have to be tackled with military precision in order for them to run smoothly – and the same is applied at home.

While Noel runs the pie shop full-time to support their bumper brood, full-time mum Sue has her work cut out for her at home with the kids – and spends hours every day tidying the house and doing multiple loads of washing.

In fact, the mum-of-22 previously revealed that she gets through six loads of laundry a day.

The busy mum added that her washing machine can hold 18kg of laundry and praised it for being “absolutely brilliant”.

Sue also 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.

Earlier this week, fans reckoned Sue is planning on having ANOTHER baby after making a cheeky comment about a huge jacuzzi.

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.

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!”
