Stuart Baggs – who was undoubtedly one of the standout contestants throughout the whole run of The Apprentice – has been found dead in his apartment on the Isle Of Man at the age of 27.
Stuart became almost iconic on the show thanks to his smarmy image, complete with cringey catchphrases like ‘everything I touch turns to sold’ and ‘I’m Stuart Baggs the brand’, but he became sort of likeable as the series continued and he almost won the big prize, I think making it to the final three or four in 2010. He was a bit of a pantomime villain – being the youngest ever contestant on the show and always bigging himself up – but he was a great character and it obviously completely sucks that he’s died.
Our condolences go out to his friends and family. RIP. Alan Sugar has also tweeted a similar statement:
