Discussing his huge weight loss during an appearance on Good Morning Britain in June, he revealed part of the reasoning for losing weight was due to his Corrie storyline which sees character Craig becoming a police officer.
He said: "When I prepared for this storyline, I said to myself I’ll make it as easy as I can for myself, so I sat down with Rob Brennan who’s a life coach, and we worked through everything I could do to make it as easy as possible.
"So I have my breakfast and lunches delivered and they’re still being delivered now by a company called FitChef which means cooking basically I don’t have to think about I can just eat.
"In terms of the gym: I’ve kind of kept in touch with the gym I go to in Manchester, because they’re putting on loads of training programmes on their app and stuff like that.
"I’ve done the odd Joe Wicks PE! It’s just making the most out of the situation."
Smith has played Craig since joining the soap as a child in August 2011.
