RAISING 22 kids is definitely hard work – but Sue and Noel Radford have also had time to be nominated for a prestigious award for their pie shop.

The couple, who are parents to Britain’s biggest family, don’t rely on benefits and support their bumper brood with their business, The Radford's Pie Company.

Sue, 46, from Lancashire, took to Instagram to share how their family’s venture has been nominated for a gong. 

She wrote: “Successful day shopping for the North West Family Business Awards that we’ve been lucky enough to be nominated for. 

“All suited and booted.”

Sue and Noel, 51, are parents to Chris, 32, Sophie, 28, Chloe, 26, Jack, 25, Daniel, 23, Luke, 21, Millie, 20, Katie, 19, James, 18, Ellie, 16, Aimee, 16, Josh, 14, Max, 13, Tillie, 11, Oscar, 10, Casper, nine, Hallie, six, Phoebe, five, Archie, four, Bonnie, three, and Heidie, two.

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

It’s not the first award they’ve won for their pie company, which delivers all over mainland UK.

Noel previously walked away with a silver award at the British Pie Awards, as documented on their Channel 5 TV show, 22 Kids and Counting. 

Noel and his daughter had both been hoping for success at the prestigious event – the patriarch with his vegan Green Thai option and Chloe with her chicken and prosecco option.

A few days later, Noel received the news that his Vegan Special had claimed a silver prize at the ceremony, while Chloe had sadly been left empty handed.

The Radfords, who live in a 10-bed former care home, often show off their millionaire lifestyle on Instagram.

Noel previously showed off the gigantic pie he had whipped up for dinner, and displayed it next to a normal family pie to show the size difference.

Taking to Instagram, Noel wrote: “Regular pie versus a family pie for us.”

The Radford’s pie shop is located close to the family’s home, and on the website it says: “We have owned our own lovely bakery since 1999 which is how we manage to provide for (and feed) our huge and expanding family as well as for the local people of Heysham and Morecambe.”
