Mum-of-22 Sue Radford says kids ‘dropping like flies’ as UK’s biggest family hit by virus

Britain’s biggest family have been hit by a nasty virus.

Super mum-of-22, Sue Radford, updated followers on her family’s health on Instagram.

The mother of the bumper brood revealed her house has been struck down by the stomach bug, which left her children “throwing up” everywhere.

She shared that the nasty virus had quickly spread around her bunch.

Sue told fans: “The kids have been back at school for three days and we have a nasty stomach bug quickly working its way around the house.

“Poor Tillie was supposed to be starting high school today but she’s been up all night throwing up.”

She added that her kids were “dropping like flies” from the bug and it was the “worst thing about having a big family.”

We can’t imagine how stressful cleaning up all that sick must be!

Parents Sue and Noel Radford live together in what was once a care home with 18 of their children.

Their granddaughter, Millie’s child Ophelia, also lives with them.

Amazingly, Sue had previously shared that she and her husband, Noel, have spent a whopping £1million raising their huge family and that she has been pregnant for a total of 16 and a half years.

The other kids that live in the house are Jack, 23; Daniel, 21; Luke, 20; Millie, 19; Katie, 18; James, 17; Ellie, 15; Aimee, 14; Josh, 13; Max, 11; Tillie, 10; Oscar, nine; Casper, eight; Hallie, six; Phoebe, five; Archie, three, Bonnie, two; and baby Heidie.

However, Sue’s oldest three, Chris, 31, Sophie 26, and Chloe, 25, have flown the nest.

We’re wishing them all a very speedy recovery!
