After poking fun at himself, fans offered encouragement to Simon in the comment section as he showed his eagerness to get back on track with his health and fitness.
Simon’s health kicks comes shortly after an incident which saw him making a drunken topless appearance at a Manchester restaurant for co-star Alexandra Mardell’s leaving party.
Simon was removed by police for his antics and became involved in another investigation this month after he allegedly got into a booze-fuelled brawl near Aintree racecourse.
“Simon has been told there will be no further action taken by the cops following the ruckus in the Toby Carvery,” a friend told The Sun.
“It is naturally a welcome relief for Simon and those around him. Simon knows his antics haven’t looked, or been, great and he made it clear to Corrie it won’t happen again.”
Simon has previously been open about his relationship with alcohol and once spoke of getting “dangerously drunk” when his began his job at Coronation Street back in 1989.
“I’d go through a bottle of Scotch at 4 or 5am after the pub,” he told the Sunday Mirror in 2014.
“I was spending all my salary going out or on cars. Sometimes I’d be two hours late for work. Other times I’d not be there at all.
“The cocaine use came hand in hand with the alcohol abuse. I started smoking marijuana first. Reality wasn’t too great so this alternative reality with the use of substances was a better place to be.”
