Mum-of-22 Sue Radford walks out saying ‘I resign’ & the house gets trashed at Chloe’s drunken 25th birthday party

MUM-of-22 Sue has declared she’s finally had enough – as she dramatically revealed she’s ‘resigning’ on 22 Kids and Counting. 

Britain’s biggest family, The Radford's, are the stars of Channel 5’s new show, which launched in February. 

The four-part series sees Sue, 45, and Noel, 50, and their 22 kids deal with being locked down together in their 10-bedroom home during the pandemic. 

And it seems tempers finally reached boiling point, as a preview for the last episode reveals Sue had enough after picking up after her brood. 

A birthday party for their third-eldest, Chloe, who turned 25, seemingly got out of hands with broken glass, bumped heads and mess everywhere. 

A clip, shared on the Radford’s Instagram page, shows Chloe sitting on one of her one of her brother’s, as they chant ‘happy birthday’. 

The parents allowed some of the teenagers to have a party at the sprawling house, as they left for the night with 13 of the other younger kids. 

One lad says: “I’m getting hammered tonight. Absolutely hammered.”

Destruction reigned with one falling down the stairs while Chloe gets carried around the house. 

The party-goers pop champagne corks and down vodka shots, while the birthday girl desperately cleans broken glass while her sister dances on a table – with a suspicious stain on her trousers. 


After enjoying themselves a bit too much another lad confesses – while lying in bed: “How did you let me get to this state I’ll be honest.”

But the partying seems to have gotten out of hand, with the place trashed when Sue and Noel come home. 

One of the boys admits: “Well I’m absolutely dead when my parents come home.”

After peering in the bins and seeing it full of empty bottles and cups – including a Malibu bottle, Noel says: “They’ve had a good night.”


Sue gives the troublesome teens a grilling after being faced with the clean-up, saying: “I find that really disrespectful. To go round to somebody’s house and treat it like that. 

“Do you not think that’s bad?”

“I am really annoyed,” she later fumes. 

It all appears to be too much Sue, who’s also been struggling to stay on top of the ‘mountain of housework’ amid weeks of renovations, as she says: “Everywhere is just upside down.”


Her and Noel also bicker over the DIY, as she says to her husband – while up a ladder: “I’m not being funny right but I’m still surprised we’re actually still married because you stress me out when you’re wallpapering.”

The mum is also fighting a losing battle with the laundry, as she slams her kids for not pitching in.

“They’re just so lazy. They don’t do anything. Nothing to help,” she rages. 

One of their sons admits he and brother rarely lift a finger, saying: “Me and James do minimal around the house to help.”

He attempts to help his parents paint, but he’s unimpressed and says, while looking at his hand: “Oh my god James it just gets worse. There’s paint. This is why I don’t paint mum.”

While Noel also tries to get the kids helping out, telling another group of their offspring: “Get on with it you lazy sod.” 

Amid all the chaos, the show revealed Sue’s ‘downed tools and isn’t coming back’ until the house is tidied up.

She gets in the car and drives off, with Sue telling the cameras: “That’s it, I resign. Get me out of here.” 

It seems to motivate the kids, as when Sue returns she’s suitably impressed with the house, saying: “Well I’ve had a good look around and it looks pretty clean I must admit.”

The show also reveals the pair see the arrival of another mouth to feed, but this time it’s a puppy – their third dog. 

Millie says it’s ‘mum one, dad nil’, as Noel admits defeat, saying: “There’s always enough love to go round isn’t there. Just share that little bit more. What’s another one?”

While filming their new Channel 5 Show 22 Kids and Counting during lockdown, Sue – who has been pregnant for over 16-and-a-half YEARS – welcomed her 11th daughter with husband Noel.

Before welcoming Heidie in April 2020, Sue and Noel, from Morecambe, Lancashire, had already spent over £1 million raising their bumper brood.

The family famously don’t rely on benefits, and fund their family with their Radford Pie Company. 

Noel and Sue are parents to Chris, 31, Sophie, 26, Chloe, 25, Jack, 23, Daniel, 21, Luke, 20, Millie, 19, Katie, 18, James, 17, Ellie, 15, Aimee, 14, Josh, 13, Max, 12, Tillie, 10, Oscar, nine, Casper, eight, Hallie, five, Phoebe, four, Archie, three, Bonnie, two, and Heidie who was born in April.

Sadly the couple's 17th child Alfie was still born on July 6, 2014.  

Sue revealed that the weekly food bill has nearly doubled in lockdown as the children are constantly eating – and their food bill has risen from £300 to £400.

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.

And if sausages are on the menu that evening, Sue will need to ensure she puts a staggering 56 under the grill.

The popular family have racked up 348,000 Instagram and 255,000 YouTube fans thanks to sharing their daily lives. 

In September, their daughter Millie gave birth to Ophelia, and the pair are living under the Radford roof. 

22 Kids and Counting airs on Channel 5 on Monday at 9pm.

Plus new mums are following Millie Radford & Princess Eugenie in naming their kids Ophelia & August.

And here's everything you need to know about Chloe – and if she's dating.

And Sue says she spent £1m raising 22 kids & been pregnant for 16-and-a-half YEARS.
