Sue Radford has revealed how her dream Christmas holiday turned into a nightmare after running into travel disruption. 

The star of 22 Kids and Counting told her 518,000 Instagram followers how the family’s holiday – their 23rd in two years – to Disneyland Paris ended on an ‘awful’ note due to extreme weather from Storm Henk affecting conditions in the English Channel.

The Mirror reports that mother-of-22 Sue from Morecambe in Lancashire documented her long journey home, which was delayed while they waited for an available slot on the shuttle through the Eurotunnel – which was heavily backed up.

While she and the family waited for a space on the shuttle in their van, she posted on her Instagram story complaining about the wait.

‘Home time just waiting to get on the tunnel we’ve had the best week in Disneyland but looking forward to getting home,’ she wrote.

Sue and Radford and almost all their brood visited Disneyworld in April and in August 2022

She went on to explain the tunnel was ‘so busy’ which she assumed was because people were trying to avoid crossing the Channel via ferry due to choppy waters. 

The tunnel is so busy I guess people don’t want to do the ferry in this wind. We defo aren’t getting the 1:36 one,’ she complained.

However, the Radfords safely made it home in the end, despite the turbulent weather conditions.

Sue penned: ‘What an awful drive home. I absolutely hate driving in the wind and rain… I’ve been behind the motorhome following Noel swaying in the wind was something else so bad’.

She added: ‘But we are home safe and sound after setting off at 7.30 this morning. We are definitely sleeping well tonight.’ 

The Radfords, who run a bakery, enjoy their hard-earned trips abroad, which have seen them visit Lapland, Disneyland on several occasions, New York, France and the Maldives. 

Sue and Noel met at school and started dating as teens. She had her first child at 14, while Noel was 18.

The couple are parents to Chris, 34, Sophie, 29, Chloe, 28, Jack, 26, Daniel, 24, Luke, 22, Millie, 22, Katie, 20, James, 19, Ellie, 18, Aimee, 17, Josh, 16, Max, 14, Tillie, 13, Oscar, 11, Casper, 10, Hallie, eight, Phoebe, seven, Archie, six, Bonnie, four, and Heidie, three.
