Twenty seven year old entrepreneur Baggs appeared on the BBC1 show in 2010 when he was 21, becoming at the time its youngest ever contestant. He made it to the semi-finals before he was fired, and today Lord Sugar said he was “one of the stand-out characters of The Apprentice”.
Other former Apprentice stars have also been sharing their tributes to ‘The Brand’ Baggs after police confirmed they had discovered his body at a property on the Isle of Man.
2012 Apprentice winner Ricky Martin said he was “shocked” at the news, 2013 runner-up Luisa Zissman called him one of her favourite ever contestants and and 2011 winner Tom Pellereau said Baggs was probably the most memorable contestant in the show’s history.
Love him or hate him during @bbcapprentice it is terrible news that Stuart Baggs has been found dead. Such a character and I'm shocked! #RIP
