Online video chat service, Skype has reportedly removed some of emoticons for being 'potentially offensive'

According to The BBC, icons like a smiley face showing middle finger and woman's legs wearing high heels were removed, as they were potentially offensive.

The removed emoticons were part of a hidden range of icons separate to the standard ones.

However, other hidden emoticons are still available to use.
