Fans of Britain's biggest family have complimented busy mum-of-22 Sue Radford after she posted a rare snap of herself wearing a dress for the "first time in forever".

The 46-year-old is usually seen in jeans or casual clothes as she looks after her large brood with husband Noel, 50.

But messages of support apparently poured in from amazed fans when she shared a selfie dressed in a pretty blue frock on Instagram Stories.

The mum wrote: “Feels like forever since I’ve worn a dress. I’m not normally a dress person but I’m absolutely loving this one by @jacjossa."

Sue said she had received "lovely" message about the dress, which is from Jac Jossa’s range with In The Style.

In a sweet follow-up post on Stories, she said the compliments had made her confident about wearing dresses more often.

Just want to say thank you so much for all the lovely messages I’ve received after posting my dress picture.

“You’ve totally overwhelmed me. I’m definitely going to wear a dress more often.”

Sue appears to be dressed in the Ditsy Blue Floral Print Mini Dress from Jac Jossa’s In The Style range, which usually costs £30 but is currently on sale at £27.

The Radfords famously fund their lives through Noel's pie shop, which he was forced to close at the start of the pandemic.

But after daughter Chloe suggested they took the business online and restrictions eased, it's been booming and their sales have almost doubled.

Noel has said: "It’s about £30,000 just to keep the house going and feed everybody. So it’s a lot of pies we’ve got to sell to support us all!

"It’s a huge responsibility having 22 kids. I try not to let it get to me."
