THEY’VE spent much of the last year renovating their ten-bedroom home, adding a luxury bathroom suite, an outdoor bar and a hot tub to the former care home.
But mum-of-22 Sue Radford says that they have no plans to stay.
The mum of Britain’s biggest family and husband Noel are currently on the hunt for a plot of land to build their dream home on.
“We’re looking to move about half-an-hour away from where we live in Morecambe,” Sue tells Fabulous Digital.
“We want to find some land to build on, we’re looking for at least two acres so we can keep farm animals too.”
Sue, 46, admits they have been ‘umming and ahhing’ over one piece of farmland but are yet to make a purchase.
The news of the move came as a surprise to some fans who have been following the renovations on the Radford’s current home.
But Sue says that they won’t be going to waste as they have no plans to sell.

“I don’t think we will sell our current house,” Sue says.
“We’ll keep it as an investment but we need somewhere with more outdoor space and privacy for the children.”
The mum, who insists she won’t be having any more children, says that while they love their ‘brilliant’ Morecambe home, intrusion from fans has forced them to move.
She explains: “When you’re in the public eye, people do know where you live and we get people popping outside the house and taking pictures.
“It got to the point where we needed to move somewhere that’s a lot more private.”
It is safe to say that building a second house doesn’t come cheap, and neither does renovating one as the Radford fans are all too aware of.
In November, Sue was forced to defend her spending after she was accused of flaunting her ‘disgusting’ wealth on social media.
But the mum says that the money spent was completely justified.
She explains: “We had a lot of people complaining about the money that was spent on the house but we haven’t done the house up for a lot of years and it just got to the point where it needed it.

“We weren’t having holidays because of lockdown and the money we would have spent went back into the house – and lots of people did the same.”
And will they give their new house the same treatment?
Sue says: “We have done an awful lot to this house, and Noel and I are getting a bit old for it now and need to find somewhere we won’t need to put as much work into.”
“We want bigger rooms, as well as a playroom and we haven’t got enough storage in this house.
“I love my bathroom, I must admit, I would definitely go for something like that in the new house.”
There is one family member who won’t be joining the clan when they move.
Millie Radford, 19, who welcomed her second baby Chester Bleu last week is planning on moving into her own space with her first born Ophelia, one, and her partner.
Sue says: “I think it will be lovely for Millie and her partner to move out and start their life in a new home but we’re going to miss them like crazy because they’re such a big part of the house.
“Chester is settling in brilliantly, and little Ophelia is such a fantastic big sister, bless her.
“Millie’s a total natural, normally going from one child to two is quite a big step but she’s doing absolutely brilliantly.
“It’s lovely having the babies in the house again but it definitely isn’t making me broody! I am just enjoying having the grandchildren coming along now.”
Sue and Noel, 51, are parents to Chris, 32, Sophie, 28, Chloe, 26, Jack, 24, Daniel, 22, Luke, 21, Millie, 20, Katie, 19, James, 18, Ellie, 16, Aimee, 15, Josh, 14, Max, 13, Tillie, 11, Oscar, 10, Casper, nine, Hallie, six, Phoebe, five, Archie, four, Bonnie, three, and Heidie, one.
Sadly the couple's 17th child Alfie was still born on July 6, 2014.
The Radfords have teamed up with EE to launch its House of Fibre, a house powered fully by EE’s Full Fibre broadband, which gives you the strength to connect 100 devices at once.
The House of Fibre is coming to additional cities across the UK in March and April.
