DAD-of-22 Noel Radford has revealed he was left dangling from his roof after falling off a ladder outside his home while doing some DIY.
On tonight's 22 Kids and Counting on Channel 5, Noel can be seen climbing up a ladder before the nail-biting incident occurs.
Noel says in the show: “There’s still some jobs around like the side of the front bit round here.
“Some of the guttering is a bit manky. Looking how high it is, I did think ‘it looks like nothing’.
“Just going to jump up some ladders, that looks quite easy and simple to do.”
With wife Sue out the house, Noel decides to single-handedly tackle the work on the outside of the house.
In a heart-stopping moment, the ladder under Noel slips, leaving him yelling for help.
His CCTV records him shouting to Hallie, six, and Archie, four, to get some of their older siblings to support the ladder.
Noel says: “Quickly, go and get Millie, hurry up, run!”
Attracted by the crashing, his kids desperately try to put the ladder against the wall to support him.
Noel ends up jumping to the ground, but thankfully isn’t hurt.
