Colson Smith has stunned fans again showing off his weight loss in a happy snap at Chatsworth House.
Famous for playing Craig Tinker on the Coronation Street cobbles, Colson Smith has shared another pic of his epic 10 stone weight transformation.
He first wowed fans near the beginning of lockdown with his weight loss after taking up fitness as part of his character’s storyline of being a police officer.
Colson had a complete overhaul to his fitness routine but also attributes some weight loss to an unfortunate case of food poisoning in December that caused him to lose one and a half stone.
He captioned the latest picture: “T-minus 5 days till a hair cut for me. Keep staying safe.”
Colson recently told Good Morning Britain how he’d been staying in touch with his gym to keep fit throughout lockdown.
He said: “When I prepared for this storyline, I said to myself I’ll make it as easy as I can for myself, so I sat down with Rob Brennan who’s a life coach, and we worked through everything I could do to make it as easy as possible.
“So I have my breakfast and lunches delivered and they’re still being delivered now by a company called FitChef which means cooking basically I don’t have to think about I can just eat.
“In terms of the gym: I’ve kind of kept in touch with the gym I go to in Manchester, because they’re putting on loads of training programmes on their app and stuff like that.
“I’ve done the odd Joe Wicks PE! It’s just making the most out of the situation.”
Well done Colson!

Gogglebox’s Julie Malone shows off impressive lockdown weight loss in new photo
She looks great!
Julie Malone from Gogglebox has shared a picture showing off her impressive weight loss throughout lockdown.
The Mancunian TV star has shown her weight change in a picture posted to Twitter, looking very different to how she normally appears on Gogglebox.
Julie is known for her families appearance on the hit Channel 4 show, with her two sons Tom Jr and Shaun, husband Tom and their four rottweilers who always steal the show.
Julie shared the picture with the caption: “good morning from a very dull Manchester (meaning the weather ). Anyone got a secluded sunny island they could lend me for a week or two ? X Julie”, and fans of the show were quick to notice how different she looked.
One user wrote: “You’re looking fabulous Julie!”, while another added: “looking gorgeous Julie”
Another wrote “Looking good Julie. You’ve lost weight during lockdown. Well done I’ve gone the other way!!”
Julie responded with: “I was going that way at first till I read the bigger you are the worse the Covid if you get it ! Just got a new Grandson and want to see them all grow up”.
When asked how she did it, Julie revealed her secret: “Just been cutting out the rubbish and eating healthier, making meals from the Pinch of Nom books as these are low fat and healthier.”
It’s not the first time the Malone family have made headlines throughout the pandemic either.
The family have been keeping busy doing TikTok challenges and dances, including Tom and Tom Jr.
Gogglebox is back on screens from September on Channel 4.
Cat from Rochdale who went missing 12 years ago has been found 230 miles away from home
A cat from Greater Manchester vanished 12 years ago, but has now been discovered living on a campsite 230 miles away from home.
Georgie, a 15 year-old-cat, has been missing since 2008, when she disappeared while the family were on a camping trip in Scotland.
The cat has been living on a campsite in Loch Lomond for a year, which is due to close. Rescuers were baffled to find the microchip registered to an address hundreds of miles away in Rochdale.
Rescuers have said her life for the past decade will ‘forever remain a mystery’.
Cats Protection Glasgow said: “Georgie’s family got her as a kitten and from when she was 12 weeks old onwards, she enjoyed regular camping trips with her family starting out on a lead.
“Eventually she would roam the grounds of where they were staying and would always come back no problem.
“Twelve years ago, her owner had a baby and Georgie took exception to this, so when they came up here to Loch Lomond on a camping trip in October 2008, on the final day, Georgie disappeared and never returned.
“Where she has been for the past 12 years might forever remain a mystery but she’s still really friendly so suspect she has definitely been around humans.”
Georgie’s shocked family have decided to not collect their cat and instead rehome her.
Rescuers continued: “Her family were obviously extremely shocked to find out that Georgie has been found 12 years later and although their heart is telling them to drive up to Glasgow straight away to collect her, all of us know it’s not the right thing for Georgie.
“Her family got another cat nine years ago who doesn’t like other cats and we suspect Georgie also doesn’t like other cats so it wouldn’t work and it would be quite a journey home for her only to discover what we already know.
“So Georgie will be cared for by us until we are ready to find her another loving home. Her previous family will keep in touch with us to find out how she’s doing while she’s with us.”
Cats Protection added this incident shows the importance of microchipping pets.
They said: “This story just shows the importance of microchipping your pet and also a message to everyone who has a missing pet, don’t give up hope as Georgie has been found after 12 years.”
We’ll never know what she got up to for the past decade but at least she’s been found safe and sound!
