A former contestant on the hit BBC show The Apprentice, Stuart Baggs, has been found dead just one day after he turned 27.
The reality star was found at an address on the Isle Of Man and a police spokesperson said earlier today:
“Following the earlier information provided by the police regarding the discovery of a body at an address in Douglas, 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, often known by his nickname ‘The Brand’, was the youngest ever contestant to appear on the show at the age of 21 in 2010.
His catchphrases including “everything I told turns to sold”, and “I’m not a one-trick pony – I’m a whole field of ponies”, earned him a considerable following and adhered him to millions of viewers.
Lord Sugar took to Twitter this afternoon to post a message of condolence:
