Could this raccoon be practising for its next big break?

A raccoon spotted riding a scooter in a UK supermarket has been revealed to be Melanie Raccoon, who featured on Britain's Got Talent 2013.

The footage of the creature practising its scooter skills was captured by passer-by, Twitter user Bobby Bewl.

Bewl said he shot the video outside a pet store in Tonbridge, Kent.

"I thought it was really strange. I had never seen a raccoon before, never mind one riding a scooter," he told the Kent and Sussex Courier. "There was a small crowd gathered around to see it. It wasn't being forced to get on the scooter or anything, it was doing it of its own accord."

"It was a bit of a natural on it," he said.
