Actors are often unfairly critiqued on their appearance due to being public eye, none more so than Coronation Street Actor Colson Smith, Colson joined Seán on the show this morning.

His character in Coronation Street was set to undergo a transformation because he was ‘’Bored of Being The Fat Kid'’.

This was what prompted Colson to make the documentary on YouTube ''Bored of Being The Fat Kid''. Colson was 140kg (24 stone) at his heaviest, he lost almost 10 stone on his weightloss journey so far.
