Mum of UK's biggest family, Sue Radford, gives update after horror crash

Sue Radford, mum to the UK's largest family, has issued an update to fans days after a horrific car crash. Sue, 47, took to Instagram to tell of her "stressful day" to followers.

She wrote: “Had day two of trying to sort the car insurance out. Why [is it] so stressful? We’re waiting for them to take my car to a specialist centre to have it fixed, but trying to get the hire care sorted is a nightmare."

On Monday, Sue revealed that her car had been involved in a collision. Sharing a picture of the street with a police van and a fire engine in the background. Sue confirmed everyone was safe and said she was "so grateful" no children were in the car.

In Wednesday's update, she said: “My car is undrivable because the rear wheel is facing inwards so not safe to drive and has taken the full force of the impact. Just hoping it’s not damaged underneath.”

There was a silver lining, however. She explained that “even though he went into [her] rear bumper at some force” the damage to that part of the car is “not too bad”.

Shortly after the incident, Sue said: "Everyone was ok. Not how I expected my day to go but thankfully everyone was ok. The car isn't but it's only metal and can be sorted. So thankful I didn't have the kids in the car though, also thank you to all who stopped to ask if I was ok.''

Just days earlier, Sue and husband Noel had issued a statement about taking a break from filming. The couple have been showing fans what it's like in their household for three series now with their Channel 5 programme, which documents their home and business lives.

Ahead of filming a fourth series, the couple and their family issued a statement to fans, thanking them for their support as they take a 'well earned break' ahead of the next lot of filming. They took to social media to share: "We just want to say a huge thank you for all the love and support you’ve shown throughout our series, we truly appreciate each and every comment and message we’ve received so thank you.

Sue recently revealed the pressures of running the business in the earlier years and that bankruptcy nearly caused them to divorce. She said: "You would go to bed thinking about the debt, wake up thinking about the debt, wake up in the night thinking about the debt.

Between them, Sue and husband Noel are parents to Chris, 33, Sophie, 29, Chloe, 27, Jack, 25, Daniel, 24, Luke, 22, Millie, 22, Katie, 20, James, 19, Ellie, 17, Aimee, 16, Josh, 15, Max, 14, Tillie, 12, Oscar, 11, Casper, 10, Hallie, seven, Phoebe, six, Archie, five, Bonnie, four and Heidie, two.
