Gethin Jones, although he doesn't do enough. He does a lot of corporate stuff I understand.

Not quite the same but Chris Jarvis is unusual in being a CBBC presenter whose career went the other way for even younger children on Cbeebies and Show me show me.

Sam and Mark were billed as the new Ant and Dec but they are still presenting kids show. Guess no one realised Ant and Dec would last so long

Shane Ritchie. He used to stand in for Philip Schofield on Going Live when he was doing Joseph, he used to be on lots of kids things years ago.

John Barrowman was one of the original hosts on Live and Kicking.

Shane also took over Run The Risk from Peter Simon which used to be a feature of Going Live and was also a seperate show as well

I don't know if it counts as "mainstream" tv but former Blue Peter presenter Diane Louise-Jordan is now one of the presenters of Songs of Praise.

He's also Breakfast Show presenter on Heart Home counties. He and Natalie B are great together.

Not quite TV/radio but The Saturdays' Rochelle was a kids TV presenter on that BBC show called Smile IIRC. She presented This Morning today with Marvin too.
