The Apprentice head honcho launches into a furious rant at the 21-year-old self-styled entrepreneur, labelling him as 'full of sh***'
The boardroom evisceration happens after the interview round to be shown on tonight's show, where the remaining five candidates are interrogated by high-flying business friends of Amstrad boss Lord Sugar.
You're fired?: Lord Alan Sugar will lay into lying Stuart Baggs on The Apprentice semi-final tonight
Blaggart: Lord Sugar fell for Baggs's claims and saved him last week - in scenes pictured here - over Liz Locke (M), to Stella English's (L) disbelief
BAGGS'S BIGGEST BLAGS
Wannabe Stuart Baggs has become notorious for making outlandish and often bizarre statements that have had viewers rolling with mirth.
Here are some of his best:
'I'm Stuart Baggs the brand. I've got a certain type of charisma.'
'Everything I touch turns to sold.'
'I'm not a one-trick pony, not even a 10-trick pony but a whole field of ponies.'
'I'm alive. there are so many people that aren't alive or have died, unfortunately. I'm alive - and that's a gift frankly.
'I have to rein in my own extreme masculinity in this task.'
One soon realises that Stuart's claims to have set up a communications firm on the Isle Of Man aren't what they seem, and dismisses him as a 'blagger.'
Lord Sugar - who fell for Baggs's patter and saved him over favourite Liz Locke last week - blasts: 'It's interesting that the regulator of the Isle Of Man telecoms doesn't know anything about you.
'My guy is not a mug, he knows people. The thing is, my four advisers looked at me and said that you're full of s*** basically and possibly you have been throughout the whole course of this process.
He adds: 'What annoys me more is that if Iíve misunderstood you with your claims and everything else you said youíve done, and someone like Liz left the process last week, I feel more sick.
'I donít believe a word you say, Stuart. Iím annoyed with myself.'
Lord Sugarís aide Bordan Tkachuk, the chief executive of computer firm Viglen, managed to cut through the bluster and confronted Stuart over his fibs.
He reveals that he got in contact with the licensing and compliance officer for the Isle Of Man government over Baggs's claims that he had formed BlueWave Communications, 'a fully licensed telecoms operator on the Isle of Man.'
The official revealed that Baggs's claims were untrue.

Going in for the kill, Tkachuk says: 'He confirmed that BlueWave does not hold a licence for mobile or fixed communications.

'BlueWave only holds an ISP licence for broadband. Stuart, youíre blagging.'
Lord Sugar's former aide Margaret Mountford also returns to grill the remaining candidates tonight and she's not impressed when Baggs greets her in a casual manner.
The return: Margaret Mountford, who left the show last year to be replaced by Karren Brady, will be making a guest appearance on tonight's show
Mountford snaps with raised eyebrows: 'Would you normally address an interviewer who you hadn't met by their first name?'
Baggs, the youngest of the candidates, investment banker Chris Bates, 23, property developer Jamie Lester, 28, cleaning company owner Joanna Riley, 25, and banking manager Stella English, 30, all have their CVs gone through with a fine-toothed comb by a panel of Lord Sugar's most critical business advisers.
Trouble-shooter Claude Littner puts Baggs in his place, shooting down his claims that he is a brand.
Littner challenges him: '"I'm Stuart Baggs The Brand: what on earth are you talking about? You're a 21-year-old kid. You're not a brand.'
Baggs said: 'Well if you look at what a brand means.'
But a furious Littner interrupts: 'Don't tell me what a brand means, okay. You're not a brand.'
Baggs refuses to give up, responding: 'I think I might be.'
Corporate lawyer Alan Watts tells the young entrepreneur: 'You're actually not a very nice person, are you? You appear to be prepared to do anything to further your career. You don't seem to have any ethics.'
After a day of being grilled in the interviews, Baggs remarks: 'I feel like I've just gone 10 rounds with Mike Tyson. My head is spinning.'
Lester also comes under fire from adviser Mountford, who is not amused by his attempts at humour on his CV.
She asks him: 'If I asked you an interesting fact about you: I have a third nipple. You're laughing, I'm not. One or two pages later on: What's the worst lie you've ever told? That I have a third nipple. Is that supposed to make me laugh? Think of a word that applies to that.'
Lester replies: 'Stupid.'

But rival candidate English refuses to be shaken by the interviews.
She begins the day determined, saying: 'I've never not got a job from an interview. I don't go for a job unless I fully expect to get it. Let's hope that I'm not going to break that tradition.'
Lawyer Watts accuses her of being cold and detached but, unfazed, she responds: 'Quite frankly, I'm here for the job. I'm not here to make friends with them.'
SEMI-FINALIST JAMIE LESTER ACCUSED OF DODGY DEALS
Apprentice hopeful Jamie Lester has been accused of doing dodgy property deals in Northern Cyprus.
According to today's Daily Mirror, it is alleged that Londoner Lester, 28, recently sold the homes of Greek Cypriots who fled when Turkey invaded the region in 1974 and illegally occupied it.
Former Liverpool council leader Derek Hatton, who attended a conference at which Lester spoke, claimed he said it was OK to sell the homes. He said: 'I remember Jamie. I disagreed with the morals and legality of his argument.'
Lester last night defended his business dealings. He said: 'All properties I have dealt with have supporting documents. I cannot be held responsible for the land'
The Apprentice is on tonight on BBC1 at 9pm.
