Colson Smith stunned fans when he unveiled his staggering weight loss transformation on Instagram on Friday. 

The Coronation Street star, 21, who plays Craig Tinker on the soap, overhauled his fitness regime last year after a nasty bout of food poisoning from a dodgy prawn made him shed one-and-a-half stone. 

Colson’s followers rushed to congratulate him on his efforts in the comments, with one fan telling the star he is ‘giving Adele a run for her money’.

Adele wowed fans earlier this week when she uploaded an Instagram after shedding seven stone. 

In the photo, a sweaty Colson beamed for the camera in sports gear after going on a run. 

He captioned the photo: ‘Bank Holiday run done. Feet up & some family time while staying at home now! Have a good un folks.(sic)’.

A way with the ladies: Colson’s character Craig has had his fair share of the ladies while on Coronation Street – pictured here kissing Kayla, played by Mollie Winward 

He also asked his fans for some isolation workout inspiration, writing on one social media snap: ‘Everyday = A Joggers day. Isolation inspiration – Talk to me Gram!

‘I wanna hear what all of yous are doing while socially distancing. Tell me your new positive goals and hobbies in this weird time?!’

He also shared another running pic and wrote: ‘Home workout number 57364  ✔️✔️What are you guys upto??.’ 

Fans soon flooded the comment section of his latest snaps. One wrote: ‘looking super fit’, while another follower added: ‘looking great!’. 

A third Corrie fan chimed: ‘You look amazing, all the hard work is paying off xx’. 

‘You look amazing, well done’, typed another one of Colson’s followers.

Colson previously revealed he lost one and a half stone in December after he got food poisoning while holidaying in Thailand.  

Speaking on his podcast Sofa Cinema Club – which he hosts with co-stars Jack P Shepherd and Ben Price, Colson 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.”

Going wild: The two were pictured out on a night on the tiles in Manchester in 2018 (left) and (right) all dressed up for a night out in October 

Open: Colson has been very happy to discuss the changes he has made to his lifestyle on social media (pictured back in 2018 with his co-star Alan Halsall, who plays Tyrone Dobbs) 

‘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.’

Colson said he was only able to eat to a banana and three slices of toast in the week after eating the dodgy prawns. 

Since then, the star has littered his Instagram with pictures of him in sports gear and has of course adopted a much healthier eating plan than just eating toast. 

Colson joined Coronation Street as 12-year-old back in 2011 along with his mother Beth, [Lisa George], and his pet rat, who was called Darryl. 

His character became a much-loved part of the soap after he joined the police and helped Bethany Platt, (Lucy Fallon), to bring down her rapist. 

After becoming firm friends, the couple briefly dated one another. 

Colson and Lucy became good friends in real life and were often pictured on nights out together in Manchester.  

The actor was cast on the show after being spotted at Northern Film and Drama classes.  

In 2016 it was revealed he had already shed three and half stone after hitting the gym and being put on a strict diet.

And it seems as though he worked even harder on his own personal goals from 2019 onwards.  

Good work: Fans soon flooded the comment section. One wrote: ‘looking super fit’, while another follower added: ‘looking great!’
