Coronation Street’s Colson Smith turned heads with his 10 stone weight loss in gym shorts.
The Corrie actor, 22, grabbed attention on his low-key shopping trip with his impressive weight loss, in Manchester on Thursday.
As temperatures begun to warm up, he slipped into a pair of gym shorts paired with a hoodie for his casual outing.
The redhead star, who plays Craig Tinker on the cobbles, cherry picked strawberries for his basket while browsing the food.
Out with his Corrie co-star Ben Price, Colson proved they were friends outside work with their trip to the supermarket.
Amid the coronavirus pandemic, Colson was wearing his protective face mask while doing his shopping.
All eyes have been on the Coronation Street star after he embarked on his weight loss journey when Coronation Street stopped filming during the pandemic.
Compliments have been flooding the comments section of his Instagram since he begun posting snaps showcasing his slimmed-down frame.
Photographs capture the actor either breaking into a sweat in the gym or on an outdoorsy walk getting fresh air.
Previously, Colson joked about having to wear a fat suit for his job on Coronation Street to ensure continuity with his character.
In lockdown, the actor has completely overhauled his lifestyle and shed the pounds impressing all of his fans.
He told The Sun: “We are in direct continuity, but I’ve almost lost about ten stone since we left work so I’m not sure that [my hair] is going to be the biggest of their issues.
“I might be wearing a wig and a fat suit when we go back. Now we go to a purple shampoo, which almost makes it a platinum sort of colour, which basically takes the ginger pigment out.
“So the yellow-ness will go, and I will have a head of blonde hair, which I technically do now.”
Letting everyone in on the secret, Colson also shared some tips on how he’s maintained his trim figure with his diet.
During an appearance on Lorraine, he said: “I have my breakfast and lunches delivered, and they’re still being delivered now, which means cooking I don’t have to think about, I can just eat.
“And in terms of the gym, I’ve kind of kept in touch with the gym I’ve been going to in Manchester because they’re putting on lots of training programmes on their app.
“I’ve done the odd Joe Wicks PE, and then it’s just making the most out of the situation.”
