The mum of Britain’s biggest family has shown a glimpse of what went on the night before her youngest children went back to school.
Mum-of-22 Sue Radford was among the thousands of parents around the country making sure uniforms and lunches were ready for the morning as their children returned to school for the autumn term.
She shared a simple image to the family’s Instagram page of two pairs of girls’ shoes and two pairs of boys’ shoes piled on top of some folded uniform.
The shot also had four water bottles lined up and ready to go.
Sue posted: “And just like that the summer holidays are over.

Back in July the family headed to Scotland for their summer holidays, with Sue posting to say the children were ”absolutely loving” it.
Sue and Noel Radford, who live in Morecambe, made the eight-and-a-half hour journey with most of their 22 children after managing to squeeze into two campervans.
The family has posted lots of pictures and videos of their journey and activities on Instagram to their 395,000 followers.
They added that the youngsters are “absolutely loving” making memories.
It appears the trip includes all of the younger children plus a few of the older siblings have come along too.
The children could be seen enjoying ice creams, a BBQ, playing on the park and spending time in the sand pit.
They also took a tip in a boat to go dolphin watching.
