The Apprentice star Stuart Baggs has been found dead in his home on the Isle of Man.

The 27 year-old businessman was found in his home on Central Promenade in Douglas at 9am this morning.

The police confirmed the news in a statement which read: "Police can now confirm that the man is Stuart Mark Alden Baggs, 27 years of age.

"Police confirm that at this time there is nothing obvious to indicate the cause of his untimely death and enquiries will continue.

"The police request that consideration is given to the privacy of the family and friends at this difficult time."

He rose to fame in 2010 after being the youngest contestant to appear on The Apprentice where he dubbed himself Stuart Baggs 'The Brand'.

His popularity increased as a result of his one-liners including "Everything I touch turns to sold" and "I'm not a one-trick pony, I'm not a 10-trick pony, I'm a whole field of ponies - and they're literally all running towards this job".

Baggs, who was born in Plymouth, was the managing director of telecommunications company, BlueWave Communications Ltd, on the island and only this week launched a 4G hub to bring the technology to the Isle of Man.
