Police have said Stuart's body was found at a property on the Isle of Man at around 9am this morning but his death is not thought to be suspicious. He founded a telecommunications company on the island in 2007 and just this week had been talking excitedly about his plans for the company's future.

His appearance on The Apprentice will always be remembered for some of his classic lines, known as Bagg-isms. Examples include, "Everything I touch turns to sold" and "I'm Stuart Baggs 'The Brand' - I've got a certain type of charisma."

Along with Lord Sugar, many Apprentice fans and celebrities from around the country have been sharing their shock and sadness on Twitter at news of Stuart's death.
