Sophie announced her third pregnancy in August 2015 and declared she would not follow in her parents’ footsteps. “He will definitely be our last – although I can’t say the same about mum and dad,” she told The Sun.

She added: “Mum always jokes that I’m not going to stop at three. She thinks I will have eight, but that’s definitely not going to happen. When we told her about baby number three she was delighted, she’s always happy when a new baby is coming along.” Chloe, who is the third eldest child, has also moved out of the family home to be with her boyfriend.

  • In May 2021, Chloe took to Instagram to announce she was leaving the family nest to move in with her partner.
  • She posted a picture of herself and her boyfriend enjoying a toast to their important milestone together saying: “Few drinks to celebrate LIVING together!!” Get the latest celebrity gossip and telly news sent straight to your inbox.

How many of the Radford kids are autistic

Answered By: Aaron Powell Date: created: May 17 2023

Noel Radford has spent some one on one time with one of his many children after they were diagnosed with autism last year. Britain’s biggest brood, the Radford’s are made up of 22 kids with more grandchildren on the way. Of those 22, Max, the couple’s 13th child was recently diagnosed with autism in 2021.

Speaking on their Channel 5 show, Sue and Noel revealed the changes and differences in Max’s behaviour since his diagnosis. In a frank conversation, Sue admitted that as a parent to lots of children, it’s easy to notice when one needs more attention than the others. Read more: TUI cancels 180 Manchester Airport flights as chaos continues for passengers The 12-year-old boy, like other children with autism, is in need of routine to feel comfortable, Sue says.

But it’s the recent behaviour changes that dad Noel hopes he can help with by spending more quality time with his 13th child. Noel said: “I noticed with Max recently he’s seems to have gone into a little shell and he seems to just sit in his room and play on his tablet. Max and Noel headed out to Morecambe Bay Sue added: “It is right up Max’s street.” Noel and Max headed to a local tackle shop for the supplies needed before heading out. The family live in Morecambe and the bay itself provides a great and convenient spot for the pair to have a go.

Setting up on a fairly bright day, Max and Noel came up short with almost zero signs of any fish swimming near their spot. Moving towards deeper waters did provide a couple of opportunities to bring something back but the slipper fish managed to free themselves and the duo went back home. Determined not to head home empty handed, Noel treated Max to a portion of fish and chips from a local chippy instead.

To have another crack at fishing, Noel called Max’s best friend Jay for the three of them to “go out to sea and do some proper fishing”. The sailor took the group out to sea and quickly, it was Max’s line that caught the first fish, a dogfish. Max was the first to catch a fish and then they just “kept coming in” Soon, they all caught multiple fish and had a much more successful attempt. Speaking about the original aim of the trip, Noel added: “There’s definitely a difference in Max when he’s out here.

At home, he’d be playing on his computer but when he’s out on the boat, he’s a completely different person. “His little face lit up when he caught one and then they just kept coming in one after the other and they were absolutely buzzing.” The first episode of the new series aired on Sunday, May 29, on Channel 5.

The series is set to show the day-to-day exploits and activities of parents Sue and Noel and their bumper brood.22 Kids and Counting has documented some of the family’s biggest moments including birthdays, holidays and business dramas. This series is likely to feature more holidays, including their recent trip to Florida, and hopes to find a new home.

Do the Radfords have a nanny

Answered By: Harry Brown Date: created: Nov 11 2023

A minibus for the school run, seven kilos of potatoes for supper, mountains of laundry. Why DO this couple with FOURTEEN children want more babies? By Updated: 19:31 BST, 18 January 2012 It’s difficult enough for families with two or three children to keep them in check.

  • But for Sue and Noel Radford and their brood of 14, a family outing is a feat of logistical planning complex enough to fill most parents’ hearts with dread.
  • The Radfords run a successful local bakery in Morecambe, Lancashire, which has enabled the family to earn enough money – without the need to claim benefits – to buy a nine-bedroom house to accommodate their clan.

Father Noel Radford sets out to work at 4am, heading back home in time to help with the school run – which demands the use of a minibus. Family suppers are like running a canteen. Seven kilos of potatoes are peeled, army style, and cooked in industrial-sized pots with 30 carrots, three whole cabbages and 16 pork chops. Handful: The Radfords have 14 children – and one on the way – making their annual summer holiday a logistical nightmare

  • It’s a wonder the family gets through the average day without losing one of their lively troop – let alone when they break from their routine.
  • But in a move that most families would consider less a break and more a form of prolonged torture, the Radfords manage to take an annual holiday abroad.
  • And as seen in the Channel 4 documentary the family is starring in, 15 Kids and Counting, which aired last night, they not only plan the getaway – a sunny bucket-and-spade jaunt to Lanzarote – with military precision – they manage to have a good time along the way.
  • Preparations involve the laundering, ironing and packing of 120 T-shirts and 60 pairs of shorts.
  • And as the Radfords attempt to corral their brood through check-in, the staff assume the rowdy bunch is part of a school trip.
  • Days on holiday are mostly spent ensuring none of the Radford clan has wandered off, and a constant roll call is carried out.

During every waking moment, Sue and Noel Radford are absorbed by their children. But to this couple, that is what life is all about. Well-behaved: The Radfords manage to keep their brood in check while on holiday Sue Radford, 36, has spent half of her adult life pregnant and over the last seventeen years has had a baby nearly every year. All fourteen children aged 22 down to just one still live at home.

  • But despite the hard work and energy caring for such a brood demands, the Radfords say they ‘love everything about babies’ and want yet more.
  • ‘I suppose in a way you could say we are addicted to having children.
  • We just love everything about it,’ admits Mrs Radford.
  • Only a year separates the oldest Radford girls 17-year-old Sophie and Chloe, 16.

They are used to their mum being constantly pregnant.

  1. Betraying a wisdom beyond her years, her daughter Sophie, 17, says: ‘I can’t remember her not being pregnant.
  2. ‘It’s like her own personal drug, having babies, honestly it is.’
  3. But while many will no doubt disapprove of Sue and Noel Radford’s desire to constantly procreate, there’s much to be said for the depth of love the couple share.

Emotional baggage? Sue and Noel Radford, pictured with their 14 children outside their home in Morecambe, Lancashire, say their need to surround themselves with children could stem from their early childhood: both were adopted

  • Their beginning will seem shocking to some, but perhaps goes some way to explaining why Sue and Noel are so determined to surround themselves with children.
  • Sue and Noel were teenage sweethearts, and started their family early when Sue became pregnant at 14 with their eldest child, Chris, now 22.
  • Although only teenagers, they were determined to keep the baby as both knew the pain unwanted pregnancies could cause: Noel and Sue were both given up for adoption at birth.
  • ‘I can never really say for sure whether it is because we are adopted that has got something to do with us having so many children,’ Sue says.
  • ‘It must have been a very lonely time for my birth mum.

‘But part of living in such a big family you’ve always got somebody. I don’t think they will ever be lonely.’ Full house: A photograph from May last year shows the Radfords with their brood – and the then newborn baby Tillie May, who is now almost a year old

  1. Sue finished school and married Noel when she was 18, planning to have ‘perhaps another one or two’ children.
  2. Once Sophie and Chloe had arrived, however, the couple discovered they were enjoying parenthood so much that they just kept going.
  3. It was after the arrival of Jack, 14, and while Mrs Radford was pregnant with Daniel, 12, that the couple found their current house – a nine-bedroom Victorian former old people’s home that was in need of work.
  4. ‘Somebody did joke, “You’ve got all those bedrooms, you’ll have to fill them up”,’ said Mrs Radford.
  5. And sure enough it wasn’t long before with each new room they decorated, there were children to share it.

In quick succession they had Luke, 10, Millie, nine, Katie, eight, James, seven, Ellie, six and Aimee, five. Then, after a brief gap, came Josh, three, Max, two months, and Tilly May, now nearly one. To support his family, Mr Radford works hard running the bakery, which is just a short drive from home.

  • ‘We do have a routine and we try to stick to it,’ said Mrs Radford.
  • ‘I don’t think I would cope otherwise.’
  • The only outside help the couple rely on is a nanny who looks after the youngest children when Mrs Radford works from 9am to 2pm at the bakery.

‘We have always wanted to support ourselves,’ she said. ‘I like being kept busy, I wouldn’t like not to work – neither of us would even though it can be quite difficult juggling work and home.’ And even before beby number 15 arrives, Sue knows she would like to have more.

‘I definitely would like to have maybe another one but who knows whether that one will turn into another two or three?,’ she says. Sophie says: ‘I cannot physically imagine her stopping having babies. She could carry on as long as she can. That’s a lot of babies.’ For Sue though, ‘a lot’ is never enough.

And when she goes into labour with baby number 15, she says it will be like the first time all over again. ‘You can’t get a better feeling than meeting a new little person. Love it. It’s probably why we have done it so many times.’ The next episode of 15 Kids and Counting is on Channel 4 on 24 January at 9pm.

Why are the Radfords so rich

Answered By: Wyatt Williams Date: created: Mar 06 2024

Sue Radford and her family are often quizzed on how they fund their lavish life and huge family, but despite mounting suspicion, they don’t rely on handouts. The Radford family boasts an impressive net worth and they are self-sufficient as they live on the income from Noel’s family bakery business, their social media platforms, and TV series ‘My 22 Kids & Counting’.

However, despite being comfortable with money – recently jetting off to Disneyworld in Florida – Sue has previously stressed that they’re ‘definitely not secret millionaires’. When previously asked if their family were rich, Sue said: “To me rich would be having the big mansion, the flash cars and quite a few hundred thousand in the bank, to me that would be rich but we are not that.” reports the Mirror.

But they don’t seem to be struggling – and the only help they get is through universal child benefits. So how much is Sue worth and what is her income? Here’s all we know.

How much do the Radfords get for each episode

Answered By: Gregory Richardson Date: created: Mar 19 2024

TV SHOW – Alongside their growing social media presence, the Radford family are also the stars of their own reality TV show 22 Kids and Counting – which has run for three series. Noel and Sue Radford pictured outside their Morecambe home before taking nine of their children to school Sue with the family’s campervan, which she and Noel bought in a previous episode of the hit series.

  • The motorhome is estimated to be worth £30,000 The show follows the family in their everyday lives – from their youngest daughter Heidie’s christening to a recent holiday to France,
  • Despite the fact the family have now filmed 30 episodes, brand expert Andy Barr – CEO of digital marketing and branding agency 10Yetis – believes Noel and Sue will have been paid less than £10,000 for each show.

He explained: ‘The typical fee per episode is going to be in the thousands rather than the tens or hundreds of thousands that people often think is the case with TV shows of this nature. ‘If they continue to get commissioned for a fourth or fifth season, then they are going to be able to command a higher fee.’ For the first season, Andy estimates the family will have gotten £1,000 per-episode – meaning they may have gotten £10,000 by the time they were finished filming.

  • Off the back of this success, the expert said this could have negotiated their way up to £3,000 per episode in season two.
  • He currently estimates that the Radfords make £5,000-an-episode.
  • Although it might not be the payday most people would expect, Andy says Noel and Sue will be more interested in the exposure.

He added: ‘If the production company behind it sell the show to a bigger TV network or one of the large streaming platforms, then the fee will go up even more. Quite often in situations like this, the subjects of the documentary get higher payments based on licensing deals, so if the show sells overseas for example, they will receive more.

  • ‘To be honest, the fee that they are getting paid for the show will be dwarfed by the endorsement opportunities that they can command because of their high follower number social media accounts.
  • They have half a million followers on Instagram and nearly 400k of subscribers on YouTube alone.’ Describing how the family ‘taps into viewers’ curiosity, brand expert Nick Ede said: ‘They are relatable to fans, which is why Channel 5 clearly loves them.

‘Viewers love to see how the parents cope with such a big brood, running a business and day to day life – including Noel and Sue’s relationship.’ Total estimated earning from TV series: £90,000 RADFORD’S PIE SHOP Despite toying with the idea of retiring in a recent episode of 22 Kids and Counting, Noel’s pie shop seems to a steady source of income for the family.

Left: Noel Radford pictured at work in his pie factory. Right: Noel’s daughter Chloe Radford pictured preparing pies When the second season of the show hit screens in February 2021, Noel claimed he was inundated with orders and had to temporarily shut their website. In a statement posted on their Facebook page, the father-of-22 wrote: ‘Sorry that we can’t reply to every email that we receive each day as we are busy making pies.

‘If you have placed a order we are working on them as fast as we can but they are taking a little over two weeks. ‘This week alone we have sent out over 500 orders of pies and still more to go. We hope you can bare with us but trust me we are working day and night to get things done.

‘Apologies that they are taking longer than expected.’ Noel and his team moving into a larger premises to keep up with demand in June 2021. Pictured: the father-of-22 outside the new space after collecting the keys In March 2021, Noel’s company had to stop taking orders as they were struggling to keep up with demand.

In one week, he claims they sent out 500 pies As well as selling their pies at local farmer’s markets, Noel also has his own shopfront in Heysham. According to their website, the company is also branching out into creating a range of puddings alongside their pies – which cost £17.50 for a family size or £3.75 individually.

  1. In the most recent episode of their show, Noel revealed that he has made over 2.5m since 1999 – which means their total sales would be around the £9,375,000 mark.
  2. However, without an accurate cost of production, it is impossible to estimate the company’s gross profit.
  3. That said, business appears to have been booming recently – with Noel and his team moving into a larger premises to keep up with demand in June 2021.

  • Last year the family had their busiest year to date, but this year is sure to be full of more challenges and tribulations.
  • In their new series, they’ve faced a wave of super-sized dramas, unlike anything they’ve ever experienced before.
  • In tonight’s finale episode of their incredible series, for the first time in his life, the adopted dad-of-22 Noel decided it was the right time to discover more about his birth parents, leading to emotional discoveries with potentially life changing consequences.
  • Parents of the UK’s largest family, the Radfords, were both adopted as babies and in tonight’s episode, Sue and Noel went on a genetic journey, taking Noel into a past he knew nothing about.
  • Noel explained: “We are both adopted but I don’t think it’s affected our relationship in any way, we are just normal people and that’s it.”
  • The couple have never had any contact with their birth parents, and know nothing about either of their families’ medical history.
  • The journey started when one of their daughters, 17-year-old Ellie, fell ill.

Sue noted: “Ellie is very lethargic, she doesn’t have any energy. There’s a lot going on with Ellie at the minute.

  1. “It’s really unusual for Ellie to be off her food, she’s not eating much and we’ve noticed that she’s lost a lot of weight.”
  2. Discussing Ellie’s and symptoms, Sue took her to the doctors.
  3. After having tests, it was identified that everything was normal, apart from her liver function.
  4. Sue explained: “The only thing that was a problem was that her liver function is high.

“It’s beyond the level that they would say is normal. She said she thinks she’s got Gilbert’s Syndrome. “Basically Gilbert’s Syndrome is hereditary, it’s genetic, it can get passed on, so she said either I’m a carrier or Noel is a carrier. It might mean that some of the other children might have it.”

  • The diagnosis sparked concern with Noel and Sue and as neither of them have their biological family history, Sue ordered a home test in an attempt to find out more.
  • Noel pricked Sue’s finger and then did his own to collect a blood sample, and as the likelihood of Ellie being the only one with Gilbert’s Syndrome is low, Sue got the whole family tested too.
  • Noel then added: “We’re both adopted, we know nothing about our medical history.
  • “I’d quite like to find out a bit more about my family side, where I’m from.”
  • Sue replied: “I’m quite happy to do the medical side of it, but I don’t want to do any more digging deeper.
  • “For me, I’ve always felt like my mum and dad are my mum and dad and I’ve never felt like digging any deeper.”
  • Noel then said: “I think it might just be a bit interesting.”
  • He then bought himself a DNA testing kit, to learn more about his family history.
  • Noel noted: “I don’t really know much about my biological family so something like this will shed a bit of light about what the history might bring, health wise.
  • “It might tell me a bit more about who I am, where I’m from, possibly my birth parents.
  • “Now as I’m getting older, I do think about it a bit more often.”

Noel’s results identified that he is 97.2% British and Irish and provided a huge family tree. Holding back tears, Noel explained: “I don’t really like talking about my adoption. “I don’t know why I don’t like talking about it, it’s just weird. I just don’t like it.

  1. “I have a lot of respect for my mum and dad and I think it’s mainly to do with that.
  2. “I’m glad I was adopted to be honest, because I wouldn’t have the life I have now, which is weird to say, but yeah.”
  3. Regardless of his close relationship with his parents, Noel was still keen to dig deeper to find out more about his biological family.
  4. Whilst on a drive to pick up a new mixer for his bakery, a diversion took him away from the motorway and to a hospital.
  5. He noted: “I’m just on my way to look at my mixer and I’ve ended up here – Stepping Hill Hospital, which is actually in Stockport.

“Is that possibly where I was born? In that building there?

  • “It would have been the first and the last time I was with my birth mum.”
  • As he broke down in tears, he added: “I came out one door and went one way and my birth mum went the other.”
  • When he arrived back home two hours later, Noel opened up to Sue about his day.
  • He added: “I went to look at the mixer, but I ended up in Stockport and ended up at the hospital, and I think it was probably the hospital I was born in.

“It was a bit surreal. It’s quite sad that someone gives you up, for whatever reason they might have to.”

  1. Sue then responded: “For you Noel, I think it has always bothered you, so if you want to find your birth parents, you should definitely do it.”
  2. This prompted Noel to dig even deeper and he applied for his adoption records.
  3. Later in the episode, the documents arrived and Noel sat down to read them.
  4. He noted: “There’s quite a lot of information actually, it says I was adopted by my mum and dad on 3rd January 1971.
  5. “Born in Stepping Hill Hospital, Stockport.
  6. “My birthday is actually my birthday, it’s not been changed in any way.
  7. “My birth mum was 16, so she’s about 68 or 69 now.

“There’s a good chance she’s still alive and kicking. Hopefully she is. “I don’t know the situation she was in. “It’s got my birth mum’s name. I’ve actually got her name.” As the episode ended, a teaser for the next series revealed that Noel would be diving deeper in search of information about his past.6 Noel admitted that he finds it difficult to talk about his adoption Credit: Channel 5 6 As he visited the hospital he was born in, he broke down in tears Credit: Channel 5 6 He opened up his adoption records and found his biological mother’s name Credit: Channel 5 : Dad-of-22 Noel Radford breaks down in tears at emotional discoveries about past

  • “I just want to get him out of the house and spend some time with him.

  1. Sue added: “It is right up his street.”

  7. Undeterred, Noel takes Max and a pal out to sea on a boat with a skipper, and this time they do manage to catch loads of fish.
  8. Max happily exclaimed: “I’m a master fisher!”
  9. Many people were quick to praise the family giving Max special attention, with one saying: “How sweet and it’s fantastic Noel and Sue are investing in their children lives by not just providing but be active parents who cares and it shows.”

Another added: “You did an awesome job Max!! You can see what a great time they all had.”

Will the Radfords have another baby

Answered By: Curtis Diaz Date: created: May 20 2023

22 Kids and Counting star Sue Radford and her husband Noel have revealed their plans for baby number 23. The family, whose eldest is 32 and youngest is three, rose to fame on the reality programme, showing the chaos of their lives with nearly two dozen children all under one roof.

  • But they’ve now addressed the possibility of growing their family even more.
  • Answering questions on their YouTube channel, Sue revealed, when asked if they planned on having more children: ‘Definitely not.’ ‘No more babies,’ Noel agreed.
  • Sue explained: ‘Now that Heidi’s three and she’s out of nappies, and we’re probably going to be getting rid of the pram soon, it’s just so much easier than having a newborn.

‘When we were on holiday in April I was sitting on the sun lounger and just watching the kids playing in the pool and I just thought, if we had a baby you wouldn’t be able to do that. The parents revealed that their family won’t be growing with anymore of their own children (Picture: @theradfordfamily) ‘I just thought, I do love not having I mean, we’ve loved having our kids,don’t get me wrong, I don’t want that to come across that we’ve got bored of them or whatever, definitely not.

I just feel like for us, we’ve had our babies, children now and we’re just going to sit back, watch them grow older, and be grandparents and that.’ Last season, Noel and Sue had to clear up rumours spreading amongst their children that they were having another baby. In the first episode of the series, the parents called a family meeting, which the children knew to mean one of two things – either they are going on a huge holiday or there’s a new sibling on the way.

Noel told his brood: ‘Right kids, we’ve got you all in here because we’ve heard the rumours going around the house. Sue admitted holidays wouldn’t be the same with a new baby (Picture: Lion TV) ‘You’re all sort of thinking me and mum are going to have another baby, so we’re going to put the record straight. ‘Mum and me have both decided no more. We’re done. ‘There’s no more babies, no more brothers and sisters for you lot, we’re happy with what we’ve got.

Little Heidi is the last of the bunch, the last of the Radford clan.’ However, their children were sceptical to accept the statement, with one of their oldest sons commenting: ‘You’ve said this multiple times, that this would be your last one. Can we get it in writing?’ This comes after their daughter Millie, who is their seventh child, revealed she’s expecting a baby girl.

Along with a sweet video of her baby scan, she wrote: ‘One more to love and adore 👶🏻 baby No3 is💗💙.’ 22 Kids and Counting airs on Channel 5. Got a story?

Who is the father of Millie Radfords second baby

Answered By: Simon Perry Date: created: Dec 21 2022

Who is Millie Radford’s boyfriend? – We don’t know much about Millie’s partner, but we believe he is called Harley and is the father of the star’s youngest child Chester Bleu. Millie posted a photo of Chester’s dad on her Instagram stories. Picture: Instagram She previously shared a sweet photo of her baby dad holding their little boy in his arms. Millie is also mum to daughter Ophelia Jo after first becoming pregnant at 18 with an ex boyfriend. Millie Radford is already a mum of two. Picture: Instagram “He just wasn’t happy to step up and be a dad so he’s never been named.”

How much do the Radfords get paid from Channel 5?

TV SHOW – Alongside their growing social media presence, the Radford family are also the stars of their own reality TV show 22 Kids and Counting – which has run for three series. Noel and Sue Radford pictured outside their Morecambe home before taking nine of their children to school Sue with the family’s campervan, which she and Noel bought in a previous episode of the hit series.

The motorhome is estimated to be worth £30,000 The show follows the family in their everyday lives – from their youngest daughter Heidie’s christening to a recent holiday to France, Despite the fact the family have now filmed 30 episodes, brand expert Andy Barr – CEO of digital marketing and branding agency 10Yetis – believes Noel and Sue will have been paid less than £10,000 for each show.

He explained: ‘The typical fee per episode is going to be in the thousands rather than the tens or hundreds of thousands that people often think is the case with TV shows of this nature. ‘If they continue to get commissioned for a fourth or fifth season, then they are going to be able to command a higher fee.’ For the first season, Andy estimates the family will have gotten £1,000 per-episode – meaning they may have gotten £10,000 by the time they were finished filming.

  1. Off the back of this success, the expert said this could have negotiated their way up to £3,000 per episode in season two.
  2. He currently estimates that the Radfords make £5,000-an-episode.
  3. Although it might not be the payday most people would expect, Andy says Noel and Sue will be more interested in the exposure.

He added: ‘If the production company behind it sell the show to a bigger TV network or one of the large streaming platforms, then the fee will go up even more. Quite often in situations like this, the subjects of the documentary get higher payments based on licensing deals, so if the show sells overseas for example, they will receive more.

  1. ‘To be honest, the fee that they are getting paid for the show will be dwarfed by the endorsement opportunities that they can command because of their high follower number social media accounts.
  2. They have half a million followers on Instagram and nearly 400k of subscribers on YouTube alone.’ Describing how the family ‘taps into viewers’ curiosity, brand expert Nick Ede said: ‘They are relatable to fans, which is why Channel 5 clearly loves them.

‘Viewers love to see how the parents cope with such a big brood, running a business and day to day life – including Noel and Sue’s relationship.’ Total estimated earning from TV series: £90,000 RADFORD’S PIE SHOP Despite toying with the idea of retiring in a recent episode of 22 Kids and Counting, Noel’s pie shop seems to a steady source of income for the family.

  • Left: Noel Radford pictured at work in his pie factory.
  • Right: Noel’s daughter Chloe Radford pictured preparing pies When the second season of the show hit screens in February 2021, Noel claimed he was inundated with orders and had to temporarily shut their website.
  • In a statement posted on their Facebook page, the father-of-22 wrote: ‘Sorry that we can’t reply to every email that we receive each day as we are busy making pies.

‘If you have placed a order we are working on them as fast as we can but they are taking a little over two weeks. ‘This week alone we have sent out over 500 orders of pies and still more to go. We hope you can bare with us but trust me we are working day and night to get things done.

  • ‘Apologies that they are taking longer than expected.’ Noel and his team moving into a larger premises to keep up with demand in June 2021.
  • Pictured: the father-of-22 outside the new space after collecting the keys In March 2021, Noel’s company had to stop taking orders as they were struggling to keep up with demand.

In one week, he claims they sent out 500 pies As well as selling their pies at local farmer’s markets, Noel also has his own shopfront in Heysham. According to their website, the company is also branching out into creating a range of puddings alongside their pies – which cost £17.50 for a family size or £3.75 individually.

In the most recent episode of their show, Noel revealed that he has made over 2.5m since 1999 – which means their total sales would be around the £9,375,000 mark. However, without an accurate cost of production, it is impossible to estimate the company’s gross profit. That said, business appears to have been booming recently – with Noel and his team moving into a larger premises to keep up with demand in June 2021.

  • Noel explained: “We are both adopted but I don’t think it’s affected our relationship in any way, we are just normal people and that’s it.”
  • The couple have never had any contact with their birth parents, and know nothing about either of their families’ medical history.
  • The journey started when one of their daughters, 17-year-old Ellie, fell ill.

Sue noted: “Ellie is very lethargic, she doesn’t have any energy. There’s a lot going on with Ellie at the minute.

  1. “It’s really unusual for Ellie to be off her food, she’s not eating much and we’ve noticed that she’s lost a lot of weight.”
  2. Discussing Ellie’s and symptoms, Sue took her to the doctors.
  3. After having tests, it was identified that everything was normal, apart from her liver function.
  4. Sue explained: “The only thing that was a problem was that her liver function is high.

“It’s beyond the level that they would say is normal. She said she thinks she’s got Gilbert’s Syndrome. “Basically Gilbert’s Syndrome is hereditary, it’s genetic, it can get passed on, so she said either I’m a carrier or Noel is a carrier. It might mean that some of the other children might have it.”

  • The diagnosis sparked concern with Noel and Sue and as neither of them have their biological family history, Sue ordered a home test in an attempt to find out more.
  • Noel pricked Sue’s finger and then did his own to collect a blood sample, and as the likelihood of Ellie being the only one with Gilbert’s Syndrome is low, Sue got the whole family tested too.
  • Noel then added: “We’re both adopted, we know nothing about our medical history.
  • “I’d quite like to find out a bit more about my family side, where I’m from.”
  • Sue replied: “I’m quite happy to do the medical side of it, but I don’t want to do any more digging deeper.
  • “For me, I’ve always felt like my mum and dad are my mum and dad and I’ve never felt like digging any deeper.”
  • Noel then said: “I think it might just be a bit interesting.”
  • He then bought himself a DNA testing kit, to learn more about his family history.
  • Noel noted: “I don’t really know much about my biological family so something like this will shed a bit of light about what the history might bring, health wise.
  • “It might tell me a bit more about who I am, where I’m from, possibly my birth parents.
  • “Now as I’m getting older, I do think about it a bit more often.”

Noel’s results identified that he is 97.2% British and Irish and provided a huge family tree. Holding back tears, Noel explained: “I don’t really like talking about my adoption. “I don’t know why I don’t like talking about it, it’s just weird. I just don’t like it.

  1. “I have a lot of respect for my mum and dad and I think it’s mainly to do with that.
  2. “I’m glad I was adopted to be honest, because I wouldn’t have the life I have now, which is weird to say, but yeah.”
  3. Regardless of his close relationship with his parents, Noel was still keen to dig deeper to find out more about his biological family.
  4. Whilst on a drive to pick up a new mixer for his bakery, a diversion took him away from the motorway and to a hospital.
  5. He noted: “I’m just on my way to look at my mixer and I’ve ended up here – Stepping Hill Hospital, which is actually in Stockport.

“Is that possibly where I was born? In that building there?

  • “It would have been the first and the last time I was with my birth mum.”
  • As he broke down in tears, he added: “I came out one door and went one way and my birth mum went the other.”
  • When he arrived back home two hours later, Noel opened up to Sue about his day.
  • He added: “I went to look at the mixer, but I ended up in Stockport and ended up at the hospital, and I think it was probably the hospital I was born in.

“It was a bit surreal. It’s quite sad that someone gives you up, for whatever reason they might have to.”

  1. Sue then responded: “For you Noel, I think it has always bothered you, so if you want to find your birth parents, you should definitely do it.”
  2. This prompted Noel to dig even deeper and he applied for his adoption records.
  3. Later in the episode, the documents arrived and Noel sat down to read them.
  4. He noted: “There’s quite a lot of information actually, it says I was adopted by my mum and dad on 3rd January 1971.
  5. “Born in Stepping Hill Hospital, Stockport.
  6. “My birthday is actually my birthday, it’s not been changed in any way.
  7. “My birth mum was 16, so she’s about 68 or 69 now.

“There’s a good chance she’s still alive and kicking. Hopefully she is. “I don’t know the situation she was in. “It’s got my birth mum’s name. I’ve actually got her name.” As the episode ended, a teaser for the next series revealed that Noel would be diving deeper in search of information about his past.6 Noel admitted that he finds it difficult to talk about his adoption Credit: Channel 5 6 As he visited the hospital he was born in, he broke down in tears Credit: Channel 5 6 He opened up his adoption records and found his biological mother’s name Credit: Channel 5 : Dad-of-22 Noel Radford breaks down in tears at emotional discoveries about past
