Britain’s biggest family with mum Sue Radford expecting her 22nd child are off on holiday where they will meet one of Australia’s largest broods.
The Radfords have their own YouTube channel and told their 123,000 subscribers they will be going Down Under for a month when daughter Tillie has a frame removed from her leg.
It is a surprise break for Tillie, 9, who had an operation to fit the frame earlier this year to lengthen her right leg after it stopped developing due to a procedure she had when she was 18 months old.
Tillie has now been given the all-clear by doctors to travel and the family have announced their Australian holiday plan.

Dad Noel, 48, said: “We’ve been wanting to book Tillie’s surprise destination holiday but we thought we’d better leave it because we didn’t want to book it and then there be some major problem with Tillie’s leg and we couldn’t cancel the holiday or change the dates.
“Today we’ve been to hospital and it’s been brilliant news so we’ve booked our holiday of a lifetime and Tillie is going to reveal where we’re going. None of these lot know!”
The Radfords will go on a road trip where they will meet the Bonells, one of Australia’s biggest families, complete with a relatively modest 16 kids.
Along the way they have made plans to visit attractions including the Sydney Opera House and also see a koala sanctuary.
The Radford family are funded by Noel's bakery business and claim only Child Benefit in terms of taxpayer-funded support.

“By coincidence today this box arrived from our friends in Australia, the Bonell family who we met three years ago.
“They are one of Australia’s biggest families , they have 16 children and we still keep in touch.”
The 21 kids are filmed opening the presents from Australia.
