Inside the VERY luxurious life of one of Britain’s biggest families

A couple with nine children have revealed how they rebuilt their very lavish lifestyle after nearly being made homeless four years ago. 

Fran and Layden Seymour, from Suffolk, appeared on ITV’s Britain’s Biggest Families: 31 Kids And Counting The Pennies, which aired last night, where they shared details of their luxurious life. 

The couple  – who are parents to Taylor, 21, Oliver, 19, Morgan, 17, Ashton, 15, Jenson, 13, Tristan, 11, Gemma, nine, Xavier, five, and three-year-old Radley – told how they were forced to move into a caravan while in ‘huge amounts’ of debt in 2017.  

But their luck turned around after investing in a soft play centre which has enabled them to buy a string of other businesses – with the family now renovating a 15th century pub into boutique hotel for £100,000. 

The family now spend a ‘phenomenal amount of money’ on their family, splashing out luxury cars, a Rolex collection worth £70,000 and Layden even treated Fran to a £2,300 helicopter ride on her birthday.

‘The thought of not having a big family, we’d be bored, what would we do with our time?’, said Layden. 

‘If we thought about what we needed we’d probably think we can’t do it, the reality is actually quite scary. 

‘We’re not ones to analyse how much we need, but if you actually think about it, it’s a phenomenal amount of money – so I’d rather not think about it.’ 

Layden, 50, has invested in a lavish car collection including a Bentley and Land Rover, teasing: ‘I think I have more cars than children, Fran thinks I have too many. I have nine children and would love ten or 11 or 12, it’s the same with cars.’

The family has an ‘unlimited’ food budget, with a barbecue for the family consisting of around 60 sausages and burgers, while Fran, 48, can sometimes go through five washes and three dishwasher loads before lunch.

Fran and Layden’s businesses include a children’s play centre, with the dad admitting: ‘The day we opened this place I had 13 pence in my bank account and that doesn’t feed a family like ours’.

Speaking of the ‘huge debts’ that he had run up, Layden went on: ‘I have been frivolous and careless with money. I’ve earned a lot of money and we’ve lost a lot of money and it has caused us problems in the past.’ 

Faced with homelessness, the parents were told that they would have each have to be split from half of their children, and each other, had they been placed in a hostel.
