Noel and Sue Radford announce break as they issue emotional statement

Stars of 22 Kids and Counting Sue and Noel Radford have made a statement announcing that they will take a break from filming.

The couple, who are the parents of Britain's biggest family, have given fans an insight into their life and household for three series now with their Channel 5 show, writes The Mirror.

But before filming for the fourth season, the couple issued a statement thanking fans for their support but said they will take a "well earned break" ahead of the next lot of filming.

On social media, they penned: "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. So chuffed to say our programme was no.1 on ch5 most Sundays and doing really well on my5 every week with it being the most watched programme on my5.

"We are currently having a well earned little break from filming before heading into filming series 4 which we are very excited about."

And many fans flocked to the comments, saying they were excited for the upcoming season.

One penned: "Aw fab! Love following your family. Wishing you all the best!"

While one said: "Love the show looking forward to the next series. Having grandparents that had 11 children and yearly family gatherings hiring halls to fit everyone in that’s what it’s all about."

One wrote: "Love the program about your lovely family."

A fan from further afield wrote: "We watch it all the way from Norway. Also your YouTube channel. My teen daughter and I love you guys. God Bless you all."

And one said: "Love watching your programme such a lovely family! Enjoy your break."

Sue recently opened up on the pressures of running their business in the earlier years and that bankruptcy nearly caused the couple 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. If anything would have caused us to get a divorce, it was this shop. Looking back now, it was a time where I genuinely thought our marriage would not pull through. We’d get divorced and that would be it. It was absolutely awful."
