Inside Corrie star Colson Smith's stylish home with cheeky nods to character Craig

Coronation Street's Colson Smith has offered fans an insight into his stylish home - which has been decorated with nods to his character Craig Tinker.

The actor has been posting photos of his house recently, showing that he also has a talent for interior design as well as acting.

The 24-year-old, who plays PC Craig in the ITV soap, has cool wall art of a police officer which could be a nod to his character on the show.

He also posted a photo of his legs while sitting down on his sofa, saying he had just had a post marathon massage.

The pic gave fans a peek at his modern styled living room which has a comfy sofa, large TV and grey walls.

He also gave himself some privacy by closing his Venetian blinds.

The room is finished off with wood flooring and a storage seat underneath the bay window where he stores his multiple pairs of running trainers.

He also has union jack bedding in his room.

Colson showing off his stylish home comes after he was recently diagnosed with a skin condition.

He has opened up about having chronic idiopathic urticaria since the start of this year.

The condition, which is also known as chronic hives, are itchy, raised, red bumps or welts that show up on the skin at least twice per week.

He explained how it "happens for no reason" and can be an allergy to a lot of things.

However, he hopes it doesn't have anything to do with his favourite foods, Nando's or Haribo Tangfastics.

Speaking on the Sofa Cinema Club podcast, he said: "It only annoys me when it’s on my face. It’s a bit disheartening when it’s on your face."

Colson went on to explain how he had a reaction a few hours before appearing on This Morning with his Coronation Street co-star Jack P Shepherd.

Jack said he believes that Colson's outbreaks are caused by his favourite foods.

Due to the outbreaks, he has been wearing long sleeve shirts to cover the reaction up.

He has been given medication to keep the skin condition under control but was still worried it would be obvious on TV.
