Carrie Bickmore makes Bluey cameo: 'Career and parenting highlight'

Carrie Bickmore has made her Bluey debut, with her daughters looking proud as punch over their mum's new gig.

It’s been six months since Carrie Bickmore appeared on our screens on The Project and now the beloved TV star is back - but this time she’s in cartoon form.

The 42-year-old has made her debut on the highly popular ABC children’s TV show, Bluey, on Sunday night, as the voice of Terrier’s mum.

In the episode titled TV Shop, Carrie’s character can be seen perusing some lipsticks as her three children are heard pleading with her in the background to go home.

“Mum please can we go home, this place smells like Grandmas,” the kids say.

Terrier’s mum ignores the children and continues testing out lipstick shades.

“Ugh that’s a bit much,” Carrie’s character says before a red lipstick catches her eye. “Oh Scarlett Bombshell” she says, while her three terriers moan on the ground.


The former The Project host took to her Instagram account to post the moment her two daughters, Evie, eight, and Adelaide, four, watched the episode, with Carrie heard saying “that was it” at the end.

Evie looked proud as punch after Carrie delivered her line on the show, saying, “That was your voice” and beaming from ear-to-ear.

“Career and parenting highlight. My girls watching my 2 seconds of fame on the latest episode of Bluey! What a genuine thrill to be a part of such an incredible Aussie show. 💙 I think ‘Terrier’s mum’ needs to be a regular character,” Carrie captioned the post.

Carrie’s famous pals applauded her in the comments section, with Rove McManus writing: “Their off-the-chart reaction to your almost deadpan “that was it”. Perfect comic delivery.”

Actress Kat Stewart wrote: I am so jealous.”

In 2020, Carrie Bickmore wrote a column in Stellar magazine about Bluey getting her family through the Covid-19 lockdowns.

“Thank you for getting our kids through the toughest year in their young lives to date,” she wrote.

“You were there during the long days in lockdown. You distracted them when we needed to work with one of them at our feet. You made us laugh when we were stretched as a family.”
