Previously taking to social media, he showed off his slim and toned legs as he posed in his gym’s mirror.

He told his followers: “Four days back in the gym. Never appreciated a foam roller more.”

Gyms in England only reopened on July 25 after months of closure due to lockdown. However, he certainly didn’t let the lack of gyms delay his progress.

Throughout lockdown he shared various home workout and run updates – and he had a meal prep service deliver his food to make it easier for him.

Colson added: “I might be wearing a wig and a fat suit when we go back.”
