FAMILIES are still recovering from the Easter long weekend, but if you thought your home was chaotic, spare a thought for mum-of-22 Sue Radford.
The Radfords, who are Britain’s largest family, shared a glimpse inside their bumper celebrations which included a giant chocolate Easter egg wall and a very impressive egg hunt.
The tower of Thornton eggs is somewhat of a tradition in the Radford household, with the mum-of-22 previously sharing a snap of last year's version – only to be outdone in 2021.
The tower was slightly taller this Easter with Millie's daughter Ophelia and Heidie, the youngest of Sue and Noel's kids who just turned one,getting their own special white chocolate eggs.
The giant personalised eggs were ordered through the Thorntons website, and, luckily, they arrived ahead of time ready for the family to devour.
If the huge chocolate tower wasn't enough though, the family members each enjoyed a delicious chocolatey creation from Sarah's Creative Kitchen, which Sue says she "absolutely loves."
Another tradition sees the family enjoy a whopping Easter egg hunt in their back garden – although this year they had construction and scaffolding to content with.
In the most recent clip shared on the family's YouTube channel, Sue, with help from the older kids, were seen hiding dozens of eggs around the garden.
In fact, there were so many that they ended up scattering them all over the ground as well with the young tots running around with a basket to store them.
Even the youngest of the clan, Ophelia and Heidie, got their fair share of various sized eggs proving once again no Radford child misses out.
In fact, Ophelia and Heidie seemed to be the stars of the show this year as they were also treated to an adorable makeshift photoshoot alongside two enormous toy chicks.
Sue shared the sweet snaps on Instagram writing: "Absolutely love this picture of Heidie and Ophelia that I must say was extremely difficult to take."
The aunt and niece duo even donned matching easter-themed dresses for the occasion which looked super cute.
Once all the fun and games ended the family enjoyed a delicious roast gammon courtesy of dad Noel, who is famed for making delicious meals for the entire family on a budget.
But, understandably, many of the little ones were too full from eating chocolate all day, and so was Sue, Noel joked.
Sue and Noel Radford, from Lancashire, are parents to Chris, 31, Sophie, 27, 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 last April.
Sadly the couple's 17th child Alfie was still born on July 6, 2014.
Last year, Sue, 46, revealed the gigantic chocolate stash that she piled high for numerous kids.
She wrote: “Happy Easter everyone. We hope you have a lovely day eating lots of chocolate.”
Sue and Noel previously did a YouTube video that racked up 300,000 views, showing their Easter traditions.
Noel said in the video: “Sue is off to do a massive, massive Easter egg haul. They are going to get loads and loads for the kids. It’ll be a ridiculous amount.”
Sue joked: “I might need to take the mini bus.”
She later showed her trolley piled high with a staggering 130 Easter eggs – but added that she would be donating any leftovers.
The Radfords live in a 10-bed former care home in Morecombe, Lancashire, and rely on Noel’s bakery to make ends meet.
