Colson Smith - keeping fit in lockdown

Last month, he appeared on Good Morning Britain with Lorraine Kelly to talk about Craig's storyline, which is seeing him try to keep fit for his job in the police.

Lorraine said: "You are going to keep fit as that is what we are seeing in Coronation Street, Craig is keeping fit. You've got to do it as well. You cannot sit there eating chocolate.

Colson replied saying: "It's all about keeping motivated, trying to achieve something every day."

Lorraine questioned if he had access to anything special such as a home gym but Colson admitted he didn't.

He added: "When I started preparing for this storyline, I sat down and tried to work out how I could make this as easy for myself as possible."

He went on to explain how he sat down with a life coach and came up with a plan.

Colson said: "I have my breakfast and lunches delivered... In terms of the gym, I kept in touch with the gym I go to in Manchester as they are putting programmes online. I've also done the odd Joe Wicks PE.

"It's making the most of the situation. Plenty of runs. Trying to do as much at home as possible."

Whilst Colson is trying to keep fit in lockdown, on-screen Craig is also keeping up with his exercise.

A couple of months ago, the character admitted he had been called names at work due to his weight and was determined to get fit.

On-screen viewers have seen him going for runs and even getting David Platt involved.
