When asked if they planned on having more children, Sue said on a YouTube video: ‘Definitely not.’

‘No more babies,’ Noel agreed.

Sue explained: ‘Now that Heidi’s three and she’s out of nappies, and we’re probably going to be getting rid of the pram soon, it’s just so much easier than having a newborn.

‘When we were on holiday in April I was sitting on the sun lounger and just watching the kids playing in the pool and I just thought, if we had a baby you wouldn’t be able to do that.

‘I just feel like for us, we’ve had our babies, children now and we’re just going to sit back, watch them grow older, and be grandparents and that.’
