Britain’s largest family with 22 children unveils new ‘mini bus’
Britain’s largest family have unveiled their late Christmas present – a ‘family minibus’ that seats nine.
Sue and Noel Radford have 22 children, aged one to 32, at least eight of whom are still of school age.
Sue posted a photo of the family’s new Renault car keys in an Instagram story with the caption: “Just picked up our new family minibus.”
Renault’s new nine-seater Trafic Passenger starts at £ 38,086 and has features like advanced driver assistance systems, a wireless phone charger and a modular cabin that allows drivers to rearrange the interior to suit of their needs.
Radford’s new car purchase comes after Noel bought his wife a Range Rover Discovery for her 46e birthday in March.
At the time, she wrote on Instagram: “Happy Birthday to me. I’m incredibly lucky to have such an amazing husband who works so hard for all of us. I love you @noelradford.
But in August, Noel said the family traded in their Range Rover for something ‘greener’ and confirmed via Instagram that they bought a £ 80,000 Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid Quarzite.
The Radfords landed a reality TV series about their family life on Channel 5 earlier this year, titled 22 Children and counting. They first rose to fame in 2012 with their documentary series Channel 4, 15 children and counting.
On the new show, which shows the family’s luxurious lifestyle, Sue revealed that she has been 16 and a half years pregnant and that she and Noel have spent £ 1million raising their many children.
