Corrie’s Colson Smith shows off lean frame after whopping 10 stone weight loss

Coronation Street's Colson Smith looked amazing as he showed off his lean frame to head out and about in Manchester earlier this week.

The star, who plays Craig Tinker on the ITV soap, recently lost a whopping 10 stone in order to keep in shape for his on-screen character, who is a police officer.

Colson admitted he was getting out of breath while chasing shoplifters as copper Craig, so decided to hit the gym to tone up for the role.

And it’s clearly paid off.

Heading out into the sunshine wearing a pair of black running shorts to show off his toned legs, Colson looked barely recognisable.

He matched the shorts with a black hooded jacket and dark t-shirt, along with a pair of iconic Yeezy trainers.

The actor pulled out his phone as he skirted around a crowded outdoor restaurant.

The 22-year-old recently divulged on the podcast he shares with Jack P Shephard (David Platt) and Ben Price (Nick Tilsley) that he’s heading off the street for a bit in order to become a farmer.

He said on the Sofa Cinema Club podcast: "April is lambing season and I’ve got the call up – I’m in for lambing season.

"I’m off work for the whole of April, so I’m going to be there lambing. It’s going to be great."

Colson explained that he’s a "top farmer".

"I can drive the tractor, I’m good at that kind of stuff," he said.

"My family has all been brought up in the countryside. They are all very outdoors-y, academic, smart people,” Colson explained.

"And then there’s me. I’m a bit of a townie, because I wanted to be an actor when everybody else wanted to live by the fat of the land sort of thing.

"So I was called to action because there had just been a calf born. So I went to feed the calf. I was quite good."

Colson also keeps fans updated on his fitness journey via his Instagram page, posting a throwback snap of him at the gym last month.

He obviously couldn’t wait to be back at the gym once they reopened earlier in April, captioning the snap: "We’re nearly there. Lockdowns have taught me the lesson of not taking the simple things for granted."
