To think the Radfords must be getting money from somewhere other than that bakery?!

They've just posted a picture of themselves at T Rex in Orlando. With 20 kids (some grandkids too I think?)

Surely there's no bakery on earth that lucrative that you can take 24 odd people to Disney World??

I expect they get paid by the TV company for the show and get free/discounted holidays etc as they have a lot of SM followers don’t they?

Xeneth88 Mon 30-Oct-17 20:34:50

They sell their "story" left, right and centre. Really though, who cares.

kaytee87 Mon 30-Oct-17 20:37:07

Well they’ve made money through the media haven’t they.
Not sure why it matters though.

a holiday to Orlando wouldn’t be enough consolation for having to raise twenty kids and the effect that would have on my pelvic floorgrin

I think they get lots of freebies in return for the advertising as lots of people follow them.

MaryPoppinsPenguins Mon 30-Oct-17 20:42:37

Of course it doesn't matter... but it just baffles me how they're able to afford it. It must be upwards of 50 grand for all of them to be there.

(And agree about the pelvic floor!)

*“Not sure why it matters though”.*

Because they harp on that they don’t claim benefits blah blah

Cagliostro Mon 30-Oct-17 20:44:37

Yes I think they get a lot of freebies just like other slebs do I guess

upperlimit Mon 30-Oct-17 20:44:42

I suppose there's a lot of money in the Radcliffe brand, plus where that brand goes opportunities for freebies follow.

They earn money by starring in the tv programmes don't They? Its not rocket science.

FenceSitter01 Mon 30-Oct-17 20:45:55

All that child benefit.

Self employed - everything will be written off on tax, pay self a minimal wage and scoop up the tax credits.

The Duggers used to bang on about their frugality but the TV company bought the massive house they live in.

Hulababy Mon 30-Oct-17 20:50:15

Celebs get given freebies and heavily discounted prices for all manner of thing in exchange for a credit on social media/media. They'll be getting various things for far less than anyone plus pay in real life, quite often for no money at all.

fencesitter child benefit in the U.K. Is a joke. No one can get rich by comfortably on that! In Germany it's nearly 200€ per child
And more if you're married (Elterngeld). They probably have shrewd investments.

FenceSitter01 Mon 30-Oct-17 20:51:14

It still adds up - all those kids , well before the cut off. Not to be sneered at.

2014newme Mon 30-Oct-17 20:52:32

Passports alone would cost a fortune

Tealdeal747 Mon 30-Oct-17 20:54:01

Taking 20 people isn't 20x the cost of taking one.

They'll probably have a 4/5 bed villa and squeeze all the kids in.

IfYouGoDownToTheWoodsToday Mon 30-Oct-17 20:55:20

50 grand for a holiday for 22 people?

That’s over 2K each! I think you’ve over estimated there OP grin

HelloSquirrels Mon 30-Oct-17 20:55:27

Ah yes because they wouldn't be immediately investigated. Ffs theyre well known i doubt they're thick enough to think they'd get away with that. .

Much more likely that they get paid for their tv appearences etc

WitchesHatRim Mon 30-Oct-17 20:57:04

It must be upwards of 50 grand for all of them to be there.

No it wouldn't. Where are you getting that figure from?

MaryPoppinsPenguins Mon 30-Oct-17 20:57:49

I haven't overestimated. It's around 10k for a family of four to do Orlando.

MaryPoppinsPenguins Mon 30-Oct-17 20:58:43

I've been several times... if you're eating in places like T Rex, even staying in a villa. That's a 10k holiday of anyone's money.

kaytee87 Mon 30-Oct-17 20:58:44

@FenceSitter01 that’s not quite how being self employed works wrt benefits. My dh pays back our child benefit on his tax return as his ltd company pulls in too much money.

MamaOfTwos Mon 30-Oct-17 20:59:46

They admit that the TV companies cover the costs of the trip in return for filming- same as when they went to Aus. Fair play if they've found a way of taking the kids on those sorts of holidays without bearing the costs!
