The Unicode Consortium, the body that controls and approves universal software standards for letters and other characters, has approved 72 new emoji set to be released later this month.

The new images, which will add to the 1,601 already in existence, add a number of long-requested symbols.

They largely follow the same themes as popular emoji already in use, from facial expressions to hand symbols, animals and food.

Clowns, shrugs, facepalms and pregnant women are also all catered for, as are gorillas, rhinos, owls and sharks.

Although these will be adopted by Unicode in June, smartphone users will have to wait for an update from their manufacturer.

Here s the full list:

Rolling on the floor laughing, Cowboy hat, Clown face, Lying face, Drooling face, Nauseated face, Sneezing face, Prince, Mother Christmas
