Before lockdown, Coronation Street episodes showed Craig (played by Colson Smith) trying to get fit and slim down as he decided to take up running. Last night, the police officer appeared slimmed down as the results of actor Colson’s lockdown weight loss could be seen and viewers couldn’t believe their eyes.
The actor has been showcasing his weight loss on social media over the past few months but last night was the first time viewers saw him reprise his role as Craig.
He could be seen taking a call in front of his car allowing fans of Coronation Street to see the full extent of his weight loss.
Unsurprisingly, viewers rushed to Twitter to comment on Craig’s appearance and praise actor Colson.
One shared: “Look at Craig he looks so different @colsonsmith you look great #Corrie.”

“So the yellow-ness will go, and I will have a head of blonde hair, which I technically do now,” he added.
Meanwhile, as viewers were distracted by Colson’s appearance, it seems Craig could take on a much bigger role in Yasmeen Nazir’s (Shelley King) case.
There’s little evidence so far to prove Geoff Metcalfe (Ian Bartholomew) was abusive towards his wife but Alya Nazir (Sair Khan) is desperate for Craig to help out her grandmother.
Yesterday evening he could be heard promising Alya that if Geoff’s ex wife Elaine (Paula Wilcox) didn’t turn up in a few days, he would do some more digging?
