Jones "gutted" over Sarpong's T4 departure
Sarpong announced earlier this week that she has quit the Channel 4 show after six years.
Jones told Metro: "She feels the time is right now. We've got some great up-and-coming presenters. We're gutted because June is a very busy lady. What I loved about the show is the fact I got to see her every week and not a lot of people can say that."
But he joked: "June is not leaving T4, she may think she is, but she is not. I am going to chain her to the T4 couch. I may even make her wear a bikini, I'm pretty fragile at the moment so don't try to stop me!"
The 30-year-old added that Sarpong was like a sister to him, saying: "She is always giving me advice and always prying in to my personal life. I love her dearly. I'm going to miss her big time."
