And while their chaotic household and eye-watering amounts of food are enough to fascinate the masses, one thing people often wonder is how do they afford to live?

“To me rich would be having a big mansion, the flash cars and quite a few hundred thousand in the bank, to me that would be rich but we are not that.”
Since the family famously don’t claim any benefits whatsoever, we reveal how the family-of-24 really make their money and how they can afford to live beyond their means.

The business is a family affair, with Noel at the helm, and children Chloe and Daniel having helped out in the past.
