Colson first appeared in the ITV soap in 2011 as Beth Tinker's son.

Since joining the soap, Craig has been involved in various storylines including discovering he had Obsessive Complusive Disorder (OCD) and Bethany Platt's grooming storyline.

Last year, Neil Clifton's daughter Kayla began working at Speed Daal in order to get closer to Bethany.

Neil was a friend of Nathan Curtis, who groomed Bethany and had his friends sleep with her for money. He was also a policeman who worked with Craig.

The corrupt police officer went to jail for his crimes, but his daughter believed he was innocent. Kayla used Craig in order to get information on Bethany.

Bethany soon realised who Kayla was and the waitress tied Bethany up and refused to let her go until she said she was lying about what her dad did.

Luckily, Craig came to her rescue and played Kayla a recording of Neil proving he did rape Bethany.

Kayla disowned her father after learning the truth.
