Mum-of-22 Sue Radford opens up about 'really, really hard' family turmoil of two of her kids not speaking for 18 months | The Sun

WHEN you've got 22 kids, you can expect a fair few arguments along the way.

But there's a new feud within the Radford family that's left two of Sue's children not speaking for a staggering 18 months.

The matriarch has even decided to ask a trained intervention counsellor to step in, in a bid to get siblings Chloe and Luke talking again in time for Christmas.

"To see them not speaking has been really, really hard," Sue said.

"Especially as when we look back over the years and see how close Luke and Chloe were.

"But they are both very strong willed and stubborn."

The pair initially fell out over a shelf of frozen pies at the Radford family bakery – prompting a huge argument.

"The longer it goes on, the harder it gets," Noel added in an interview with the Daily Mirror.

"There has been no backing down first. It’s not nice to see them not talking to each other."

The siblings' fallout is one of the major storylines in the Radfords' TV special – 22 Kids and Counting at Christmas – which airs this Sunday.

And their feud comes after another one rocked the family, when Sue and daughter Millie fell out.

It all kicked off in April following an Instagram post about a family trip to Disneyland in Florida earlier this year.

Millie had taken to her Instagram Story as she responded to a clip her mum Sue had shared of her and Noel surprising some of their grandchildren with the vacation.

Writing over a screenshot of the clip, Millie said: "Cute? But you've made money from all your grandchildren but choose your favourites.

"Said my piece."

While neither Sue nor Millie have referred to the "feud" since, they proved everything was back to normal when Millie asked her mum to be one of her birthing partners when she gave birth to daughter Elodie-Jade.

And since then, Sue has been enjoying spending time with both Millie and her three kids, frequently sharing social media posts of them together.

Now Sue is hoping that Chloe and Luke will have made up in time for Christmas, when they all sit down for a big family dinner.

After present opening on Christmas Day, they start prepping their lunch around 11am, before they sit down to eat between three and four in the afternoon.

"It is harmonious," she said.

"The older kids will sit with the younger ones whilst they open theirs, then the older ones will open their presents.

"After lunch, we will watch a bit of telly or get the Monopoly out."

It's also going to be a special Christmas as Sue and Noel's son Daniel is moving to Australia next year.

"It’s far and obviously we can’t go and visit him at a weekend,”Noel added.
