The excitable brood were filmed on Instagram carrying large sticks as they happily scampered down the path. 

One of the youngest girls could be seen happily pointing to a stream that flowed under a bridge they were stood on. 

Sue and Noel have admitted being self-isolated with their huge family has been chaotic at times, especially as Sue gave birth to their 22nd child during lockdown. 

She has also been in charge of homeschooling her large brood and keeping them entertained in their 10-bed pad in Lancashire.

Part of the lockdown fun has included putting up a huge paddling pool during lockdown for the kids to cool down in. 

The parents of Britain’s biggest family support themselves and run a bakery.

Sue, 45, and husband Noel, 49, added another little girl weighing 7lb to their king-sized clan on April 3.

The couple revealed her name is Heidie Rose.

Sue, who has spent more than 800 weeks of her life pregnant, has sworn this will be her last baby — but has said the same in the past.

The new baby joins the couple's children: Chris, 31, who no longer lives at the family home; Sophie, 25, who has also moved out; Chloe, 24; Jack, 22; Daniel, 20; Luke, 19; Millie, 18; Katie, 17; James, 16; Ellie, 15; Aimee, 14; Josh, 12; Max, 11; Tillie, 10; Oscar, eight; Casper, seven; Hallie, four; Phoebe, three; Archie, two, and Bonnie, who turned one in November.

Sadly, the couple's 17th child Alfie was still born on July 6, 2014.

At Easter, Sue also showed off a gigantic chocolate egg wall that she had made in her lounge for the entire family. 

And after she gave birth, the doting mum shared a snap of her brood tucking into a vast spread of delicious-looking Domino’s pizza on their lounge floor. 

Speaking exclusively to The Sun the supermum said in April: “The ten-hour labour was hard. But now we have weeks of isolation with a newborn baby. Let the crazy times begin.

“Only two of the kids have flown the nest, so we are all home now for the foreseeable.”

Shopping for Britain’s biggest family means Sue’s shopping list already included 100 nappies, 16 loaves of bread, 114 pints of milk, 48 large eggs, 3kg of pasta, 24 chicken breasts and 28 toilet rolls.

So it was inevitable that she would hit problems once supermarkets began clamping down on shoppers emptying their shelves due to the coronavirus crisis. 

Sue said: “I am the original panic buyer. All the shopping I ever do looks like I am clearing the shelves of toilet roll.

“When I walk out of a supermarket I am like the people you see on the news.

“There are limits now on the amount I can buy of each thing but it is pointless for me to buy two packets of chicken breast or 12 eggs. That wouldn’t even feed everyone for a light lunch.

“We managed to get one delivery before the baby was born but it is already running low and I can’t get another slot.

“The older kids have to run to the shops to get the essentials.

“They go to the corner shop for one packet of four toilet rolls and it only lasts us one day.”

In other news, Sue revealed the £30 grey paint she uses to achieve her Mrs Hinch style home.
