CHILDREN aren’t cheap.

So amid the energy price crisis, the couple have been looking at ways to keep their outgoings down, and that includes seeing how they can reduce their luxuries.

Sue took to her Instagram Stories over the weekend to admit Noel had worked out how much the family’s hot tub costs to run every week – and they were stunned by the results.

“So Noel decided to see how much the hot tub is costing us a week and I’ve got to say I’m shocked,” Sue wrote.

“He checked how much electricity we were using over 24hrs with it switched on compared to when we turned it off and it’s costing a whopping £56 a WEEK.

“Needless to say it’s turned off now till warmer weather.”

She later returned to Instagram to reveal she’d had an influx of messages from other people who had also been prompted to turn their hot tubs off due to her story.

“So many of you have either turned your hot tub off after doing the same thing or are turning your hot tub off seeing my story,” she continued.

“Honestly, I’m shocked, I had no idea it was that much.”

Noel and Sue splashed out on the hot tub in July 2020, after the COVID-19 pandemic put a halt to their holiday plans.

They were also told it would be a good form of therapy for their daughter Tillie after she had an operation on her leg.

In addition to the hot tub, the pair also installed an outdoor cinema and bar area to keep their family entertained during the pandemic.

The Radfords live in a 10-bed former care home, in Morecambe, which they bought for £240,000 back in 2004.
