The Apprentice star, Stuart Baggs has been found dead at the age of 27.
Police found the body of the businessman after being called to a home on Central Promenade in Douglas on the Isle of Man at 9am this morning (Thursday 30th July). A police statement read: “Police can now confirm that the man is Stuart Mark Alden Baggs, 27 years of age. At this time there is nothing obvious to indicate the cause of his untimely death and enquiries will continue.”
Baggs appeared on the entrepreneurial reality show in 2010, dubbing himself “Stuart Baggs: ‘The Brand’.” At the time, he was the youngest contestant to appear on the show. He quickly became a fan favourite with his classic quotes and one-liners including “Everything I touch turns to sold” and “I’m not a one-trick pony, I’m not a 10-trick pony, I’m a whole field of ponies – and they’re literally all running towards this job.”
Baggs managed to reach the semi-final of that year’s competition, but ultimately lost out to Stella English – who went on to win Lord Sugar’s business investment. Lord Sugar took to Twitter to offer his condolences, stating: “Terrible news Stuart Baggs has died. My sincere condolences to his family and friends. RIP one of the stand out characters of The Apprentice.”
Baggs was the managing director of BlueWave Communications Ltd, who only earlier this week, launched a 4G hub to bring modern telecommunications technology to the Isle of Man.
