Sue Radford, mother of a whopping 22, has showcased the real struggles of handling her enormous family as she navigates another half-term holiday.

The 49 year old, known for her part in Channel 5's 22 Kids and Counting, is currently on her 18th trip away in just 20 months - regardless of fan disapproval over her frequent travel plans - sharing images of the UK's largest family embarking on the Eurostar towards France.

She posted on her Instagram stories, threading through a McDonald's pit-stop and revealing a mammoth queue for the Channel Tunnel with an exclamation: "Oh my goodness it's so busy," alongside footage of the daunting queue.

Furthermore, she made clear that their destination was not Disneyland - again - by posting a snap of a motorway and mentioning they had "two hours to go" after already devoting nearly half a day to travelling.

The reality TV mum later showed a picture of a campsite where her children were enjoying their breakfast under the sun, indicating they had reached their destination, reports the Mirror.

Sue Radford, who excitedly announced she would become a grandmother for the 15th time when her daughter Katie welcomes her child, strongly defended herself against criticism earlier this month from a follower accusing her of squandering taxpayers' cash on her holidays.

Taking to Instagram to spotlight an angry exchange, after her post featuring family holiday photos in their £40,000 motorhome, she shared a message from a man named Adam. His response was: "You are disease...[It's] paid for by the tax payer" - this in retaliation to a photo of the Radfords relishing a barbecue on vacation in their plush vehicle.

In response, she penned: "I wonder if Adam is a high rate taxpayer or if Adam pays tax at all? Maybe he's a bit p****d he doesn't own a motorhome. I would be too as we b****y love it paid for with our hard-earned high rate tax payers money," topped off with a facepalm emoji.

Later, the mum-of-22 later posted on her Instagram Stories: "Sorry, I'd never share anything like this, BUT we get lots of these so just want to clarify, Adam is a D**K."

She then disclosed: "Sorry, I've stewed on this since yesterday and it's wound me up more than it should. Sick of messages like this s**t. You need to educate yourself before messaging this s**t as I won't tolerate it anymore."

Teasing about future plans while claiming more holidays are upcoming, she quipped: "Off to bed now as we've got lots more holidays coming up, which I'm sure Adam won't approve of," coupled with a laughing till tears emoji. Sue concluded with a dig: "All paid for by our money. Make sure to check in Adam, which I'm sure you will! ".
