Mum-of-22 Sue Radford fuming as husband brings home live turkey for Christmas dinner

Sue Radford was left far from impressed after her husband brought home a live turkey for their Christmas dinner.

The awkward moment was documented on the family’s Channel 5 show, 22 Kids and Counting, which follows Britain’s biggest family’s day-to-day lives.

As per the title of the show, Noel, 50, and Sue, 46, share 22 children together – some of whom now have kids of their own.

On the episode aired on Saturday 18 December, viewers saw the moment Noel released he’d accidentally ordered a live turkey instead of a ready-to-cook one, and had to explain the situation to Sue.

“This year I’ve decided I'm going to order a turkey from a local farm rather than a supermarket,” he explained.

Next thing you know, a woman dressed as an elf turned up at the Radford’s house and opened her boot to reveal a turkey that was still alive.

Noel said: “Oh b**ody hell, look at it! It’s not ready for the oven!"

"Sue’s gonna kill me,” he nervously continued. “I said I’ve got a turkey for Christmas, I meant an oven turkey – one we can eat – not like one that’s going to potter round the garden."

Adding further insult to injury, the woman then told Noel that he’s already paid for the bird, therefore it was now his.

Walking back up to the house with his tail between his legs, Noel muttered under his breath “I’m in so much trouble”, before calling Sue down to break the news to her.

"I don’t think I ticked the box where it said ‘oven ready’,” Noel quipped as his wife looked on at him unimpressed.

Sue responded: “Are you being serious? What are we going to do with it?"

The dad of 22 then suggested plucking the bird’s feathers out, before they all agreed that a Christmas turkey was now “off the menu”.

"He’ll live to see another day, lucky thing,” Noel joked.

Christmas is an expensive time of year for most people, but for the Radfords, it costs Sue and Noel an eye-watering £7,000 to buy their 22 kids 300 presents.

Sue and Noel are parents to Chris, 32, Sophie, 27, Chloe, 26, Jack, 24, Daniel, 22, Luke, 21, Millie, 20, Katie, 19, James, 18, Ellie, 16, Aimee, 15, Josh, 14, Max, 12, Tillie, 11, Oscar, 10, Casper, nine, Hallie, six, Phoebe, five, Archie, four, Bonnie, three, and Heidie, one.
