Sue Radford, the relatable mum from the hit show 22 Kids and Counting, has been candid about the challenges of parenting as she takes her huge family on another adventurous half-term holiday.

The reality TV sensation, aged 49, is currently on her 18th getaway in just 20 months, causing a stir among her followers with her frequent travels. The Radfords were spotted hopping onto the Eurostar, ready to explore the delights of France, as Sue shared glimpses of their journey on social media.

During a brief pause at McDonald's, Sue took to Instagram Stories to voice her frustration at the bustling queue for the Channel Tunnel, exclaiming, "Oh my goodness it's so busy," alongside a video of the crowded scene.

Contrary to what some might expect, Sue revealed that Disneyland wasn't on their itinerary this time. Instead, she posted a view of the motorway, updating her followers that they still had "two hours to go" after already being en route for nearly 12 hours.

Upon arrival, the Radford clan settled into a campsite where Sue shared a cheerful snapshot of her children enjoying breakfast under the morning sun, reports the Mirror.

Recently discovering she's set to be a grandmother again when her daughter Katie, 21, welcomes a child, Sue faced criticism earlier in the month. A follower accused her of using taxpayers' money for her holidays, a claim which she robustly defended.

Taking to Instagram to share a screenshot of the heated conversation, Sue Radford revealed a message from a man criticising her for posting snaps of her family's holiday in their £40,000 motorhome. The message read: "You are disease...[It's] paid for by the tax payer" clearly in reply to the image of the Radfords enjoying a barbecue on their getaway.

Sue was clearly upset by the negativity as she hit back saying it "wound" her up as she hinted at more travel plans.

"Off to bed now as we've got lots more holidays coming up," which she said was "All paid for by our money."

The Radford family, known as Britain's biggest family, is about to expand even more.

Sue's daughter Katie and her boyfriend Connor have announced they're expecting a baby boy. The couple shared the exciting news on Instagram with a gender reveal video that saw them kicking a football around before Katie fired a cannon to reveal blue smoke.

The mum-to-be captioned the adorable clip: "Baby Carter mummy and daddy can't wait to meet you!"
