As well as owning the title of Britain’s biggest family under one roof The Radfords have fast become one of the nation’s favourite families too. Now that they’ve become one bigger, with the arrival of new baby girl Hallie, Channel 4 is set to pick up with them once again to see how they’re getting on in ‘18 Kids and Counting’ (w/t), a 1×60’ programme from Lion Television.
The one off documentary will chart exactly what the Radford clan, form Morecombe in Lancashire, have been up to since they were last on our screens. From Sue’s hugely exciting pregnancy announcement and baby Hallie’s birth to daughter Sophie’s romantic Christmas engagement to boyfriend Joe and all the fun that comes with your big day when you have 17 brothers and sisters to organise. That’s a lot of bridesmaids dresses!
As well as The Radfords the programme will also be meeting another of Britain’s biggest broods to find out exactly how they cope with their larger than normal family and all the chaos that everyday life involves. We’ll follow Emma and Roy Hann from Dundee and their 13 children including their latest addition, baby Meg. With a new baby the Hann’s house is bursting at the seams but will the eldest kids ever leave the nest?
18 Kids and Counting (1X60’) was commissioned by Channel 4 commissioning editor Ian Dunkley. The programme will be made by Lion Television with executive producer Donna Clark and is due for TX in late 2015.
