He lost a staggering 10 stone last year after overhauling both his fitness and exercise regime throughout the pandemic.

The Coronation Street star, 22, who portrays the lovable Craig Tinker on the soap, donned all-black workout gear for his outing.

Colson chatted on the phone as he strode through the sunny park, wearing a pair of black running shorts and white trainers with white ankle socks.
He paired it with a black Ciele Athletics t-shirt and carried his belongings in a black backpack.
The soap star wore a wrist watch on one arm and a face mask on the other and seemed to be absorbed in his phone.

Colson’s outing comes after the actor revealed he is planning to take a break from the Corrie cobbles to help out his sister on her farm.
He hopes to lend his veterinarian sibling a hand as lambing season commences and branded himself a ‘top farmer.’
‘April is lambing season and I’ve got the call up – I’m in for lambing season,’ Colson said on the Sofa Cinema Club podcast to co-hosts Ben Price and Jack P. Shepherd.
‘I’m off work for the whole of April, so I’m going to be there lambing. It’s going to be great.’
Motivated: Last month, Colson spoke about his weight loss and said of gyms reopening: ‘We’re nearly there. Lockdowns have taught me the lesson of not taking the simple things for granted’
Colson said he helped on the farm last month as he continued: ‘It’s been full-on. I finished work and I got a call saying, “you need to come and help out, we need some help on the farm”.
‘I’m a top farmer. I can drive the tractor, I’m good at that kind of stuff.
The soap star first showed off his impressive weight loss in last March, but has been continuing to slim down while in lockdown as he kept up with his fitness routine at home.
Colson previously spoke about how his staggering weight loss would likely cause continuity issues on Coronation Street during filming.
Looking good: Back in November, before England’s second national lockdown, Colson showed off the fruits of his labour as he visited the gym for the last time
The star joked he will have to wear a fat suit after claiming to have lost 10 stone during lockdown.
Colson told The Sun: ‘We are in direct continuity, but I’ve almost lost about ten stone since we left work so I’m not sure that [my hair] is going to be the biggest of their issues.
‘I might be wearing a wig and a fat suit when we go back. Now we go to a purple shampoo, which almost makes it a platinum sort of colour, which basically takes the ginger pigment out.
‘So the yellow-ness will go, and I will have a head of blonde hair, which I technically do now.’
