Corrie’s Richard Fleeshman is far cry from Craig in unrecognisable topless snap
Former Coronation Street actor Richard Fleeshman, who was once a child star on the ITV cobbles, appears to be all grown up and completely unrecognisable in new snaps.
The star previously played the character Craig Harris and later became Rosie Webster's goth boyfriend in the show.
Before starring in the soap at the age of 12, his mother, Sue Jenkins also appeared on the popular ITV programme and played the character Gloria Todd during the 1980s.
At the age of 16, Richard, who is now 32 years old, left the famous cobbles but still continued to pursue his acting career.
The star has appeared in highly accredited West End productions such as Legally Blonde, The Musical and Urinetown.
But Richard's talents don't stop there as he's also a singer songwriter.
Fans of the brunette hunk may also remember that he appeared on Stars In Their Eyes celebrity special aged 13 and ended up being the youngest person to win the show.
Not only this, but Richard supported Elton John on his tour during 2008 on three separate occasions.
From looking at his Instagram account, Richard is someone who likes to keep fit as he often shows off his incredibly toned body to his fans online.
But some of Richard's 44.9k followers can't help but comment on how he looks complete different now.
On one of his previous pics, where he appeared topless, one fan penned: "Someone's put on some muscle since his years on Corrie."
The star who turned 32 on Tuesday was sent an array of positive messages from his friends and family which he also posted on his Instagram stories.
