The actor, 24, has put in the hard graft painting, decorating and renovating his new pad, and he can now enjoy the fruits of his labour.

The movie lover has a wall-mounted telly with a Sonos speaker bar, perfect for those dramatic Hollywood moments.

The open-plan entertaining area has the immortal Smiths lyrics 'there is a light that never goes out' in neon above his patio doors.

“I was being branded as just the fat kid from day one. Even at school I was always the fat kid, I was always the odd one out.”

Lockdown led Colson to overhaul his lifestyle which kick-started his weight loss journey.
