He has since said that he had a “negative” relationship with food and would regularly eat takeaways.
Colson said he didn’t realise at the time how unhealthy his lifestyle was, and now reflects that he was “self-harming” with food.
He changed his ways in 2019 and embarked on a new diet and exercise regime.
“But I made that conscious decision that I was ready to change that identity and I was ready to move on from it.”
The TV star, who left home at 17, said his outlook changed when he took up running.
Before he started eating healthily, he would order takeaways while living away from home in Manchester.
When he first showed off his transformation, the actor was inundated with support from followers who were in a similar situation.
Now, he is regularly seen in his workout gear in the gym or following a run.
Just yesterday, he completed an impressive 20 mile outing, sharing the details with his 162,000 followers on Instagram.
