Microsoft Kelly, who runs the website Ginger Parrot, told BBC Radio Scotland’s Good Morning Scotland programme: “We do feel a bit left out, so the ginger community is quite vocal about how happy they are that it’s finally going to end up being included.

“I believe probably every message I send out from now on will have a ginger emoji in it, I almost felt like I actually didn’t want to use any emojis because there wasn’t one that looked like me personally. ”

The news had been welcomed by Scots on social networking, with one redhead saying: “Someone answered my prayers. MOAN THE PARTICULAR GINGERS”

Another additional: “Glad to see my people are lastly being represented”, while another mentioned: “This is awesome! Gingers are good to look now!! ”

And something Twitter user declared: “The battle is over. The gingers have gained. ”
