Colson’s stunned Corrie co-star Andy Whyment, who plays Kirk Sutherland, replied to one picture he posted, writing: “Looking absolutely mega pal well done 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻.”

The actor first showed off his impressive new look, which has seen him shed more than a stone, as he headed off to a showbiz event back in March.

Colson started hitting the gym regularly this year to make sure he was in shape for his storyline on Corrie.

His police officer character had taken up running after finding that he was out of breath while chasing shoplifters.

Craig even told his Weatherfield pals that he was going to make an effort to get healthier after being bullied at work.

Despite overhauling his fitness, Colson also admitted that food poisoning caused him to lose one and a half stone in December.

Speaking on his podcast Sofa Cinema Club – which he hosts with Jack P Shepherd, 31, and Ben Price, 47 – the star explained he ignored advice not to eat some seafood while holidaying in Thailand.

He 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. I’ve lost about a stone and a half.”
