Born in Chelsea, London, and educated at Manchester University, where she read Drama, Bullmore began her onstage career as part of a cabaret group named Red Stockings, alongside Helen Edmondson. It was during a performance at the Contact Theatre in Manchester that a casting director for Coronation Street spotted her talent, and offered her a role as Steph Barnes, a regular on the show from 1990 to 1991[/y]. Brief returns came in 1992 and 1995.
Bullmore is known for undertaking several roles in sitcoms. From 2011 to 2012 she starred alongside Hugh Bonneville and Olivia Colman as Head of Sustainability Kay Hope in the BBC Two and BBC Four sitcom based on the London 2012 Olympic Games, Twenty Twelve. With an extraordinary ability to shoehorn ideas of 'sustainability' (which, she assures us, is different from 'legacy'...) into any conversation or meeting, Hope is tasked with the job of ensuring that the Olympic Games leave a mark on the East End of London.
From 2001 to 2005 Bullmore also starred as Maureen in the BBC Radio 4 sitcom Robin And Wendy's Wet Weekends, a programme about a childless couple from Stevenage who have an unhealthy obsession with Mayfield, the model village they have built in their garage.
From 2006 to 2007 she starred in the Channel 5 and Comedy Central sitcom Suburban Shootout, appearing alongside Anna Chancellor and Felicity Montagu] in a show centred on a female crime network in 'Little Stempington'.
Alongside these comedy credits, Bullmore's other television work includes Gentleman Jack, Happy Valley, The Crown, State Of Play, and Jam.
