SHOWBLITZ: O yes! Tabby's a changed man.

Byline: by Tina Calder

X-FACTOR star Tabby Callaghan is putting the "O" back in his name.

The Sligo rocker, who was runner-up in last year's show, said he was forced by production company bosses to drop the "O" - because "it doesn't sound right on TV or in the papers''.

A close pal said: ''When they told him to drop the 'O' from his name he felt it was a small price to pay for the opportunity the X-Factor would give him.

"Now he wants to keep his name the way it's supposed to be.''

Tabby is preparing to release his debut single this month and will star in RTE's Mother Knows Best on August 24 where his mum Bridget will try to help him stop smoking.
