Ex-Coronation Street star Scott Wright looks worlds away from his soap stripper Sam Kingston 20 years after stepping down from the role.

Actor Scott, 47, burst onto the scene in December 2000 and was nominated for Best Newcomer at the following year’s National Television Awards.

Sam famously felt the wrath of Sarah Platt’s father, Martin, after he found out his teenage daughter had a crush on the Adonis.

The enraged Martin was particularly protective as Sarah had already had a baby and warned her not to see Sam.

After his three years with the soap, Scott starred in Emmerdale, Shameless and Casualty.

He played his last TV role in the daytime soap Doctors in 2020. Since then he has acted in pantomimes and pursued his profession as a singer and musician.

The star has also transformed his physique in recent years, losing three and a half stone.

He hit rock bottom during the first lockdown, suffering from depression brought on by severe insomnia and fear of money worries.

Scott began drinking heavily, taking sleeping pills and antidepressants after his work as an actor and live musician dried up, taking his weight to 16 stone and 4 pounds.

Determined to change his life and with the help of G Herbal’s natural supplements, he lost 50 pounds (22.7 kg) in five months.

He said: “When lockdown first hit in March 2020 my whole life was put on hold. Two massive TV roles got canceled and all my regular live music and performing work went away too. I had no income and was really stressed about my finances.

“Like most people at the time, I thought it would only be a few weeks, but then it ticked by months and there was no light at the end of the tunnel.

“I was alone in my apartment most days just watching the pandemic on the news getting more and more depressed.

“My anxiety was through the roof, I worried about how I would be able to pay my bills and I couldn’t sleep at all.

“I drank a bottle of wine at night just to try and blow my mind.

“I started taking sleeping pills and had dark thoughts, so I took some antidepressants, but one of their side effects is that it stimulates the appetite, so I was satisfied with eating throughout the day.”
