Corrie Actor Colson Smith Shows Off Incredible Weight Loss After Taking Up Running
Smith, who plays Craig Tinker on the soap, has been working hard to get fit recently, having shared regular updates with fans on social media.
And a bank holiday hasn't stopped the 21-year-old's drive, as he shared a photo from today's run, writing on Instagram: "Bank Holiday run done. Feet up and some family time while staying at home now! Have a good un folks️."
Smith's efforts have impressed his followers - including some of his Corrie co-stars, who had nothing but love for him.
Andy Whyment, who stars as Kirk Sutherland on the show, replied in the comments: "Looking absolutely mega pal well done."
Brooke Vincent, who plays Sophie Webster, added: "CRAIG TINKERS GONNA HAVE GROUPEES VERY SOON."

Smith has been documenting his fitness boost over the past few months, having posted a snap back in February from outside a boot camp.
He wrote: "WIND, RAIN & SNOW! I've been through it all this week in my second home! @no1_bootcamp. Recharged and ready to go! Mint week with some charming people!!"
Thankfully, by pounding the pavement it sounds like Smith is hopefully shedding the weight he wants to in a safe, healthy way - unlike the time a bout of seafood poisoning led him to slim down a little more, erm, erratically.
Speaking on his podcast Sofa Cinema Club, which he hosts with Corrie co-stars Jack P Shepherd and Ben Price, the actor recalled how he ignored a pal's advice about eating seafood.
Smith said: "I was in Ko Lanta. I was sat on the beach and the waiter came over and was like, 'What would you like?'
"And I said, 'I'll have the prawns to start, please.'
"I had avoided seafood [on Ben's advice] but I was sat on the beach and I was like, 'How can you not have seafood on the beach?'
"Well, anyway. I'm not doing that again."
He jokingly added: "I've lost about a stone and a half."
