It was confirmed last week that Stuart’s death was caused by asthma, a condition he had suffered from for a number of years.

Atfer the news broke of his death, several stars who had worked with Stuart over the years took to their Twitter to pay tribute, including fellow ‘Apprentice’ contestant Luisa Zissman and Lord Sugar, who described him as “one of the stand-out characters” from the BBC show’s history.

Stuart’s sister, Charlotte, later paid her respects with an emotional post on social media, writing: “Today my dearest brother Stuart Baggs gained his wings. To say we are all shocked and devastated is an understatement.

“Can't explain how proud I am of him. He was the King of following his dreams and making them happen.”
