A mum-of-22 has asked fans to "wish her luck" as she begins to home school her large family.

The Radford family live in a former care home located in Morecambe in Lancashire.

Sue, 45, and 48-year-old Noel are parents to 22 children who are known as the largest family in the UK.

Just like everyone else in England, the couple have spent the past few days entertaining their brood while their home from school.

As schools are now closed across the country due to coronavirus, Sue and Noel are having to home school their kids.

So have you ever wondered what it's like having many kids in the house?

Some of Sue and Noel's kids are older which means they can run their own school schedules, but the youngsters are in need of help.

The parents have been left to run their bakery business while educating five primary school aged children and three young teens.

Speaking in a recent YouTube video to their 248,000 subscribers, Sue said: "You guys need to wish me luck, because I'm not a teacher.

"I feel like this is not going to go well. But we're like everyone else, we're going to have to do our best."

In the clip, Sue revealed: "I have got Josh saying 'I haven't got my planner'.

"Then I said 'I'll log you onto Your Learning because you can do it on the laptop today because Tillie and Aimee have their workbooks'.

"However, Josh did not have his workbook which has his log in details in, because he mistakenly thought he couldn't bring it home."

Fortunately, Aimee was on hand to log in with her details.

Then when Tillie accessed her account, she discovered there was no work uploaded for her.

So Sue had to ring the school to ask where her learning materials were and she was told it would be uploaded shortly.

As for Oscar, Casper, Hallie and Phoebe, their school loaned out Chrome books to the kids which Sue said was "brilliant".

But the four kids have many different passwords to log with, which caused some confusion.

In the video, Sue explained that Hallie was struggling to come to terms with being at home.

She told how the youngster burst into tears once finding out she won't be going to school.

It looks as though Sue has a lot on her plate as she's also looking after baby Heidi, who was born last April.

Sue and Noel recently became grandparents for the sixth time after 19-year-old Millie gave birth in September.
