And the Craig Tinker actor showed off his gym-honed physique on Friday when he stepped out in a pair of shorts which accentuated his muscular legs.
The 22-year-old soap star cut a casual figure as he enjoyed a stroll around Manchester City Centre alongside a friend following the ease of lockdown restrictions in the UK this week.
Colson, who has completely transformed his image over the past year, kept things casual as he donned a pair of black shorts and a matching zip-up hoodie.
The actor lost a staggering amount of weight after he took up running in the first national lockdown and also transformed his image further by dyeing his ginger hair blond in a bid to switch up his look.
Colson has been incredibly open about his weight loss transformation and regularly shares updates on Instagram about his workouts.
During a recent appearance on Lorraine, Colson shared some insight into his strict diet and exercise plan.
The actor revealed that he was getting his food delivered each day, and was sticking to a diet plan devised by a life coach.
“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.”
It comes after Colson recently admitted that he had taken a break from the cobbles.
The star took four weeks off to assist his sister Hannah, who is a vet, during lambing season on her farm.
Speaking on the Sofa Cinema Club podcast, Colson opened up about the welcome lifestyle and career change.

“April is lambing season and I’ve got the call up – I’m in for lambing season,” he revealed.
