The UK’s biggest family have gone on their first family outing in five weeks, taking the newest addition to the brood with them – two-week-old Heidie.
Sue, 44, and husband Noel Radford, 48, from Lancashire, who have 22 children, shared the update on their YouTube channel, explaining it was the first time they had been out and about in more than a month.
Two of Sue’s oldest children have left the nest and are currently in confinement with their own families, while 20 children still live at home with their parents.
And newborn Heidie, got her debut outing in her pram for the first time as the UK enters its fifth week of lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In the video, Sue and Noel can be seen playing around in a quiet street as their brood run around and play on their scooters.
Mother-of-22 Sue explained: ‘It’s the first time we have left the house in nearly five weeks. Heidie is having her first pram outing.’
The footage also shows the family as they try to demolish their swings and slide in their garden ahead of a new one arriving.
Noel is helped by three of his sons as they try and destroy the wooden panels of the playground piece by kicking them and hitting them with tools, under the supervision of their parents.
The family have been staying at home since the start of the country-wide lockdown, and Sue and Noel, whose brood range from 30-years-of-age to two-weeks-old Heidie, have had to do their best to keep their children occupied.

But the large family managed to cut loose during their walk, with the children and parents enjoying some sun over the weekend.
Spotting some neighbours walking in the direction during the outing, Noel and Sue then joked: ‘Human beings are approaching, human beings are approaching: get back.’
The couple support their large family through their successful pie delivery service and only claim standard child benefits.
Speaking to The Sun about shopping during the lockdown, Sue said: ‘We know suppliers through the bakery who we can get meat from, so I think we will have to start looking into getting our food that way soon.
‘Buying nappies will be a problem if I can’t get any. Archie and Bonnie are still in nappies and now I need newborn ones for the baby.’

Sue has now spent more than 800 weeks of her life pregnant after having her first child at aged 14.
Noel had a vasectomy after baby number nine but had it reversed shortly afterwards.
The most recent child was Bonnie Raye, who was born in November 2018, with the others being Chris, 30, Sophie, 25, Chloe, 23, Jack, 22, Daniel, 20, Luke, 18, Millie, 17, Katie, 16, James, 15, Ellie, 14, Aimee, 13, Josh, 12, Max, 11, Tillie, nine, Oscar, seven, Casper, six, Hallie, four, Phoebe, three, and Archie 22 months.
The couple met for the first time when Sue was seven, before going on to have their first child when Sue was 14 and Noel was 19.
They got married in 1993 when Sue turned 18, and went on to have nine children before Noel had a vasectomy – which he later had reversed.
Sadly Alfie, the couple’s 17th child, was still born on July 6th 2014.
