Sue Radford ‘keeps it real’ as she shares struggles on 18th family holiday in 20 months

Mum-of-22, Sue Radford,[1] has tried to keep it real as she shared her parenting struggles while whisking her large brood away on another half-term holiday. The star of Channel 5's 22 Kids & Counting, 49, is enjoying her 18th trip away in 20 months - despite risking the wrath of her fans[2] with her travel plans - as she shared snaps of Britain's biggest family boarding the Eurostar and heading for France. Explaining the family took a quick pit stop at McDonald's, Sue took to her Instagram Stories, pointing out the huge queue for the Channel Tunnel. "Oh my goodness it's so busy," complained the mum as she shared footage of the huge queue.

She then revealed that the Radfords weren't going to Disneyland - again - as she shared a shot of a motorway, saying they had "two hours to go" after being on the road for nearly half a day. The reality star later posted a snap of a campsite as her kids ate their breakfast in the sun after the famous family had reached their destination.

The mum-of-22, who recently found out she is to become a grandmother for the 15th time when her daughter Katie, 21, gives birth, defended herself earlier this month when a fan accused her of wasting taxpayers' money on her holidays. Taking to Instagram[4] sharing a screenshot of the angry exchange, after she posted photos of her family holidaying in their GBP40,000 motorhome, she showed a message from a man called Adam, which read: "You are disease...[It's] paid for by the tax payer" in response to a snap of the Radfords enjoying a BBQ on holiday in their luxury vehicle.

Revealing her reply, she wrote: "I wonder if Adam is a high rate taxpayer or if Adam pays tax at all? Maybe he's a bit p****d he doesn't own a motorhome. I would be too as we b****y love it paid for with our hard-earned high rate tax payers money," followed by a head in hands emoji.

Calming down somewhat, the mum-of-22, then wrote on her Instagram Stories: "Sorry, I'd never share anything like this, BUT we get lots of these so just want to clarify, Adam is a D**K."

Sue then shared: "Sorry, I've stewed on this since yesterday and it's wound me up more than it should. Sick of messages like this s**t. You need to educate yourself before messaging this s**t as I won't tolerate it anymore."

Claiming she's got lots more holidays on the horizon, she later teased: "Off to bed now as we've got lots more holidays coming up, which I'm sure Adam won't approve of," following by a crying with laughter emoji. Sue concluded: "All paid for by our money. Make sure to check in Adam, which I'm sure you will!"

Now, Britain's biggest family is set to get even bigger after Sue's daughter announced she is pregnant. The burgeoning brood is set to expend further in the months ahead after Katie and boyfriend Connor confirmed the news on Instagram. They held a gender reveal as the parents-to-be kicked a football around with Katie firing a cannon to indicate they will be having a son later this year.

Captioning the clip, which was loved by her followers, the mum-to-be wrote: "Baby Carter mummy and daddy can't wait to meet you!"
