Police investigate death of former Apprentice star Stuart Baggs

By Robert Dex

Police are investigating after former Apprentice contestant Stuart Baggs was found dead.

The 27-year-old, who ran a communications firm on the Isle of Man, was found at an address in the island's capital Douglas at around 9am.

The death was "sudden and unexpected" but there was nothing to indicate it was suspicious, a police spokeswoman said.

She added: "There is nothing obvious to indicate the cause of his untimely death and inquiries will continue. The police request that consideration is given to the privacy of the family and friends at this difficult time."

Baggs was the youngest ever candidate when he appeared on the BBC One show in 2010, at just 21.

He was knocked out at the interviews stage and the series was eventually won by Stella English, but he became a cult favourite with his steady stream of catchphrases and his description of himself as "Baggs the brand".

The presenter of The Apprentice Lord Sugar said: "Terrible news Stuart Baggs has died. My sincere condolences to his family and friends RIP one of the stand out characters of the apprentice."
