Coronation Street’s Colson Smith looks slimmer than ever as fans rush to praise his incredible weight loss

CORONATION Street's Colson Smith stunned fans as he continues his 10 stone weight loss journey.

The soap star, 21, looked totally unrecognisable in his recent Instagram post of him attempting to steer a Ragdoll boat down a river in Glaisdale, North Yorkshire.

He looked slimmer thank ever sitting at the helm of the boat in a navy blue t-shirt and shorts.

Colson completed the casual look with black sunglasses and white trainers.

He captioned the cute post: "My parents let me drive for all of 6 seconds until we started heading diagonally down the Canal. #TheRagDoll."

But fans couldn't help but notice how great he's looking since he decided to change his life 12 months ago.

One fan wrote: "Wow you look incredible! 🔥🔥", while another added, "you look fantastic 🙌👍"

A third said: "You look amazing well done 👍 x"

And a fourth added: "Amazing weight loss."

The star started hitting the gym regularly to make sure he was in shape for his role as a policeman on the popular ITV soap after he realised he was getting out of breath chasing shoplifters while playing the copper.

He has totally transformed his life and has lost a whopping 10 stone overall.

Colson showed off his impressive new look for the first time as he headed off to the TRIC Awards in London.

But after ITV bosses halted production of the popular soap, the star had even more time to work on his fitness during lockdown.

He unveiled his epic weight loss for the first time last month as he returned to our screens for the first time since lockdown.

Before returning back to set and despite being proud of his achievements, Colson joked that he'd have to wear a fat suit at work.

In May, the 21-year-old Craig Tinker star posted a picture of himself out exercising in the sunshine, with one amazed fan insisting he was "giving Adele a run for her money".

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."
