After telling you all about Heidi, the Oscar-predicting opossum, we thought we ought to give an update.

After being invited onto American television to select the future winners of this year's Academy Awards, Heidi opted to make her predictions by choosing grapes which were put on top of photos of the nominees.

Sadly for Heidi, her psychic readings abilities appeared less honed than those of her late countryman, Paul the Octopus, who correctly tipped teams throughout last year's World Cup.

The opossum predicted that Danny Boyle's recent film, 127 Hours would win the coveted Best Picture award, but the gong went to The King's Speech instead.

But it wasn't all bad news for Germany's latest psychic animal sensation - Heidi did correctly pick both Colin Firth and Natalie Portman to win Best Actor and Actress.
