Coronation Street star Colson Smith has revealed he's picked up a painful injury while competing in ITV's The Games. The actor has won the hearts of viewers as they've watched him go up against five other male celebs in a series of sporting events.

The 23-year-old has been going head-to-head with former Corrie star Ryan Thomas, The Wanted's Max George, Love Island's Wes Nelson, Harry Potter actor Josh Herdman, and ex-Strictly Come Dancing pro Kevin Clifton all week in everything from swimming to speed climbing.

Colson won the admiration of viewers earlier this week when he took part in the Men's 50m Freestyle at the London Aquatics Centre.

Prior to taking to the pool, it was revealed in the VT that he had only learnt to swim a matter of weeks ago while training for the show.
