The new release - expected for June - includes many modern reference points including a 'Rolling on the Floor Laughing' emoji and a 'A Hand Taking a Selfie' emoji. 

Others that may well gain cult status include a terrifying clown, the long-awaited 'Fingers Crossed' and the inspired addition of 'Almost-Vomiting Face' - sure to be huge around the festive period.

Most notably, Unicode seem to have acknowledged the controversial usage of the aubergine to denote a penis and given users two new, equally suggestive food items that offer varying size options. 

The cucumber and baguette may never be pure again.
