Stephen Bear has been dubbed the King of Emojis, with his 'Ex on the Beach' antics grabbing an astonishing 41,837 picture images during the current series of the show.
The 25-year-old hunk has been named the Most Entertaining Male after his name attracted more laughing emojis in tweets, while he was also dubbed the Most Shocking and, thanks to a steady stream of heart graphics, the Most Fancied Male.
'Ex on the Beach' has attracted 103, 713 emojis this series, with Bear also referenced with the bear head emoji, while co-star Gaz Beadle was referenced with the saucy aubergine emoji.
And according to HTC's social listening study, Jemma Lucy picked up the Most Entertaining Female and Most Attractive Female accolades after attracting a string of happy-crying and heart emojis for her antics.
The HTC Desire Emoji Awards also saw Lillie Lexie Gregg dubbed the Most Shocking Female following her emotional breakdown after she discovered Gaz had cheated on her, with the incident attracting a huge number of posts featuring the see-no-evil monkey icon.
The research was carried out to celebrate the new HTC Desire 10 Lifestyle handset, which will be available on htc.com later this year for £249 (sim free). For a limited time only the phone will come complete with free hi-res earphones, a clear case and protective screen.
