They addressed the online criticism

The parents of Britain's largest family have hit back at trolls who think they have too many holidays.

The Radford family is complete with 22 kids and parents Sue and Noel Radford who have been married now for over 30 years.

Between them, they are parents to; Chris, 34, Sophie, 30, Chloe, 28, Jack, 26, Daniel, 25, Luke, 23, Millie, 22, Katie, 21, James, 20, Ellie, 18, Aimee, 17, Josh, 16, Max, 15, Tillie, 13, Oscar, 12, Casper, 11, Hallie, eight, Phoebe, seven, Archie, six, and Bonnie, five.

Their youngest, little Heidie Radford, is just three years old.

And, even while Sue has spent nearly 17 years of her life pregnant, she still isn't ruling out expanding her family of 22.

The pair have since hit back at critics online who have taken issue with the fact the family have reportedly gone on 17 holidays in 20 months with one claiming they 'go to Florida more times than I go to the shops'.

Sue, however, reckons the avalanche of critical comments are simply a matter of 'jealousy.'

As per The Sun, she explained: "I think it just boils down to jealousy.

''I have the mindset now - particularly since I lost my dad - that if you can afford to go on a holiday, then go.

The family have reportedly gone on 17 holidays in the past 20 months.

''Life is definitely too short to say, 'Oh, maybe I should squirrel my money away in the bank' or whatever."

Sue continued: "Life is too short, so just do it.

"If we can afford to take our kids to Florida, then we'll take our kids to Florida.

''I'm not going to bother myself about what other people say.''

Noel also weighed in on the matter, claiming it was like his family are 'not allowed to do things' unless they 'have permission from the internet trolls'.

He went on: "And it's as if people think we deserve to be kept in our place - that because we weren't born into wealth, and because we are ordinary people from an ordinary town in the North West of England, we should just be happy going to Benidorm.''

Last month (29 February), Sue and Noel released a book titled The Radfords: Making Life Count.

In it, Noel addresses the comments about the respective ages he and Sue were when they had their first child.

Sue thinks the critical comments are simply a matter of 'jealousy.'

Noel was 17 when he learned he was going to become a father while Sue was four years his junior.

However, after receiving some criticism online after it came up on one of their shows, Noel has since come forward to explain they 'were both just kids'.

"People have inevitably talked about the situation and it has been written about in the newspapers and discussed on social media," he wrote.

The reality TV star continued: "There has been a lot of focus on it and, in a way, it was probably worse for us than when it actually happened. So many people have given their opinions.

"But we were both kids it was not as if I was 10 or 15 years older than Sue.

"For a lot of people, though, things are just black and white and you are tarnished with the same brush as other people in totally different situations.

"We were young and we were daft. But we wanted to continue as a couple."

The father-of-22 also shared he didn't get in any official trouble over the age situation as it was 'down to your mums and dads', adding that there was 'no knock on the door saying I was in big trouble'.
