The sister of businessman and former Apprentice contestant Stuart Baggs has paid tribute to him on Facebook.

In the post, Charlotte Baggs wrote: "Today my dearest brother Stuart Baggs gained his wings. To say we are all shocked and devastated is an understatement."

“Love him or hate him, he touched many people's lives from his TV antics to his amazing work with Bluewave Communications. He was the biggest character and will leave the biggest hole behind."

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

Ms Baggs said it was more difficult to cope with his death because the cause was unclear.

“Not knowing what or why makes it all the harder."

Baggs was found dead at a property on the Isle of Man on 30 July, a week after his 27th birthday.

Aside from his business work, he is known for his notable appearance on TV show The Apprentice, in which he became one of the programme's most famous contestants for his confident one-liners.

Lord Sugar paid tribute to him today, writing on Twitter that he was "one of the stand out characters" of the show.
