The Apprentice pays tribute to Stuart Baggs on its latest series Best Bits: Most Memorable Characters. Here, we remember him too.
There are so many beloved reality TV series out there but for many, nothing holds a candle to The Apprentice.
Created by Mark Burnett, it arrived courtesy of the BBC back in 2005 and since then, audiences have been treated to an impressive fifteen seasons.
It was rolled out in the wake of the American original series’ success but has carved out a legacy very much its own over the years, delivering a wealth of eternal TV moments which have burrowed into popular culture.
So, it’s hardly surprising that the greatest hits – of sorts – has been devised to celebrate its fifteenth anniversary.
Beginning on Thursday, October 1st 2020 on BBC One, The Apprentice Best Bits: Most Memorable Characters takes fans on a trip down memory lane, and a rather poignant one at that…
Stuart Baggs of The Apprentice
In The Apprentice Best Bits: Most Memorable Characters, Tom Allen remembers previous contestants and is sure to highlight Stuarts Baggs.
As highlighted by the BBC, the 27-year-old former contestant passed away back in 2015.
He lived in the Isle of Man and ran a telecommunications company, but became familiar to audiences when he made The Apprentice history.
The previous source notes that he became the youngest ever contestant on The Apprentice when he landed a part in the show in 2010, as he was just 21-years-old.
Stuart was fired in the semi-final of season 6 but he achieved some iconic moments during his time on the show.
Viewers will likely remember his catchphrases such as “I’m Stuart Baggs the brand” and “everything I touch turns to sold”.
How did he die?
As reported by the BBC, Inspector Iain MacMillan said of the cause of death: “Mr Baggs had suffered from asthma for many years and died as a result of his condition.”
The coroner was informed that Stuart died from “natural causes”.
Officials were called to his home on Central Promenade in Douglas and he was unfortunately found dead when they arrived.
