Coronation Street star Colson Smith loses seven stone

Colson Smith who plays Corrie favourite Craig Tinker in the ITV soap has lost seven stone.

He showed off his svelte new look on Instagram on Friday, having embarked on a new fitness regime after losing a stone and a half last year due to food poisoning.

The 21-year-old star’s transformation has stunned fans who quickly reacted to a photo Colson posted of himself preparing to go for a run, captioned: ‘Bank Holiday run done. Feet up & some family time while staying at home now! Have a good un folks.(sic).’

One wrote: ‘looking super fit,’ with another adding: ‘looking great!’
