Coronation Street: Colson Smith weight loss

Over lockdown, Colson has lost an incredible amount of weight and has been keeping his followers up to date with his fitness.

Although he is yet to divulge in all of his weight loss tips, he revealed it kicked off by a bout of food poisoning.

After eating some dodgy shrimp on holiday, he lost a stone and a half.

Speaking on his podcast Sofa Cinema Club, which he co-hosts with Corrie co-stars Jack P. Shepherd and Ben Price, he said: “I was in Ko Lanta. I was sat on the breach 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 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.”
