Jars and Coins

Have you seen this question before?

A jar holds 1000 coins. Out of all of the coins, 999 are fair and one is double-sided with two heads. Picking a coin at random, you toss the coin ten times.

Given that you see 10 heads, what is the probability that the coin is double headed and the probability that the next toss of the coin is also a head?
