YOU think you’re having a hard time keeping your child entertained for half a semester?

Imagine how chaotic that would be for the parents of 22-year-old Sue and Noel Radford, who had to survive 128 school holidays – not to mention homeschooling during the lockdown.

Busy parents, who have Britain’s largest families, certainly know a thing or two about keeping their bountiful cubs busy when they’re not at school.

On tonight’s episode of 22 Kids and Counting on Channel 5, Sue and Noel decided to hold their own “Radford Olympics” on the nearby beach in Morecambe.

“It is a huge challenge during the school holidays to find things to keep the kids entertained,” says Sue.

“We have teenagers and we have toddlers, so we have to try to find things that can please everyone, which is really hard work.

“We always like them to try new experiences, things they’ve never done before.

“We need to find things to do that will tire them out.”

Noel added: “It’s a beautiful sunny day, we’ll go down to our local beach and have a Radfords sports day.”

The first challenge was to get the youngsters out of the mud, but then they staged a classic sack race.

This was followed by a three-legged race, which saw many squirming in the sand.

Sue added: “Our kids absolutely love the game, they’re so competitive, I wonder where they get that from, Noel?

“Christmas is a time of family competition.”

Creative parents end their sports day with an egg and spoon race – and they even entered on their own, as Sue walked away with a win.

Another way the family tries to keep their bumper cubs entertained on Channel 5 programming is a big day on the farm.

The kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves as they watched a ram or two ferocious and Sue even got stuck in milking a goat.

The famous family doesn’t rely on subsidies and is supported by their bakery, and then in the episode Noel and daughter Chloe decide to enter the British Pie awards.

Noel has been a baker for 30 years, but Chloe thinks she can teach him a thing or two.

The father and daughter duo set up a tasting table to see what the public thought of Noel’s new vegan recipes and Chloe’s chicken and delicious food.

Noel admitted defeat when Chloe’s cake was the most popular, and she said: “I’m pretty proud of my recipe”.

However, at the award ceremony, Noel was the one who walked away with the silver prize.

Finally, Ellie celebrates her sweet 16th – and is the 10th Radford to reach 16.

“There are so many plans going on their birthdays, we always want to make them really special,” says Sue.

Noel said: “We have 21 birthdays a year, which is £200 or £300, which is between £5-6,000, why do we settle things like this? Just bored! ”

Sue and Noel 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 Alfie couple’s 17th child was still born on July 6, 2014.

Sue revealed they spent 1 million pounds to feed their large cubs and she was 16 and a half years pregnant.
