The star was likely on his way to the gym after filming as he carried a shaker in his hand.
Colson, who plays Craig Tinker on the ITV show, also sported a pair of white trainers for the day.
The actor is popular with fans of Coronation Street since he began portraying officer Craig in 2011.
Amid the COVID-19 lockdown, Colson had been working hard on his fitness and often shared snaps of his workout routine on social media.

After lockdown restrictions eased, Colson joined his fellow soap stars on set as filming resumed with social distancing in place.
Friday night marked the first time his police officer character had been seen on screen in months, and with Colson’s amazing weight loss, his return was much more noticeable.
The soap star first showed off his impressive weight loss in March, but has been continuing to slim down while in lockdown as he kept up with his fitness routing at home.

Colson recently spoke about how his staggering weight loss will likely cause continuity issues on Coronation Street during filming.
The star joked he will have to wear a fat suit after claiming to have lost 10 stone during lockdown.
Colson told The Sun: ‘We are in direct continuity, but I’ve almost lost about ten stone since we left work so I’m not sure that [my hair] is going to be the biggest of their issues.

Impressed: Viewers were quick to take to Twitter to share their shock at Craig’s new look, with many praising actor Colson for his incredible efforts
‘I might be wearing a wig and a fat suit when we go back. Now we go to a purple shampoo, which almost makes it a platinum sort of colour, which basically takes the ginger pigment out.
‘So the yellow-ness will go, and I will have a head of blonde hair, which I technically do now.’
Coronation Street airs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7:30pm on ITV.
