BRITAIN’S biggest family the Radfords have updated their fans on their huge home renovation, including a very swanky new feature.

Noel had picked up a couple of rolls of LED strip lights to go around the coving in each of the rooms.

The lights, which can be picked up on Amazon, can be purchased for about £16 a roll on Amazon and come with a remote control so that you can choose the colour that best suits your mood.

Aside from the fancy new lighting, dad Noel revealed the progress on the renovations of the former care home in Morecambe, Lancashire.

He revealed that the plasterers had managed to cover the hole that he had previously made in the wall, but there was still a way to go.

Speaking in the video, he said: “There’s still quite a bit to do by the looks of it, there’s still a lot more boarding to do probably three times more than what’s already been done.

“It’s starting to look a lot better already - certainly a lot better than what it was a few days ago.

“We’re getting there slowly but surely.”

The Radford family have some massive renovations planned for this year which will no doubt give them all a cool new space to lounge around in.

The parents have slowly been chipping away at the huge home sprucing up one room at at time, and most of the kids now have a fresh, new bedroom to spend time in.

The Radfords live in a 10-bedroom former care home which is spread over four storeys.

The busy parents, who support themselves with a bakery and don’t rely on benefits, currently have 19 of their kids living under their roof - which can’t have been easy during lockdown.

This includes Millie, 19, who is still at home after giving birth to her first child Ophelia in September.
