In 2007, Charlesworth took part in the auditions with the producers Kim Glover and Samantha Forrest to become a member of a new girl group. Charlesworth was chosen to become a member of the "City Girls" (initially called "Stiletto"). The group was formed by Charlesworth and other three girls: Sheena Rowe, Sophie Leniston and Rebecca Doran. City Girls released their first single "O.M.G." in August 2008. The single was written by Darren Monson, Jay Raser and Sheena Rowe, and was produced by Pete Hammond and Jay Raser. The single reached number 3 in the UK Music Week Pop/Club Charts and reached #40 in the Bulgarian chart. The group started a promotional tour including a number of performances, appearances on television, radio and newspapers. The song was used as the soundtrack of the video game, Imagine Girl Band. In the beginning of 2009, Charlesworth and Doran left the group and were replaced by Claudia Evans.
