Sam, who is dating Stephanie, tweeted the emoji for his 162,000 followers to see, moments after Jeremy told Stephanie he thinks he has fallen in love with her.
Despite being indirect on the social media site, many of Sam's followers were quick to link his tweet to the CBB star.

Responding, they shared their own thoughts at Jeremy dropping the L-bomb. One fan told Sam: "You'll be okay. You'll find someone new. You've gained lots of popularity!."
Another follower said: "@SamReece as if they're actually in love don't worry they're an absolute joke." While another suggested Sam may want to rethink his relationship status. They tweeted: "Time to update the 'I would like to clarify that Stephanie and I.......' statement!! #cbb."
After watching Stephanie's flirty antics with Jeremy in the CBB house, which includes them sharing a bed and kissing under the duvet, Sam publicly announced he was withdrawing his support from this girlfriend.
Many fans took that as Sam dumping Stephanie via Twitter, but he later clarified the pair are still together. Sharing a message to his Twitter account, Sam said: "I would like to clarify that Stephanie and I continue to remain a couple irrespective of comments on social media surrounding our relationship saying that I've 'dumped' her as she still remains in the house."
While he insisted that he would never end a relationship over text or social media, he did add that he will be talking to Stephanie when she leaves CBB.
Sam's laughing emoji tweet comes after viewers saw Jeremy coming clean about his feelings for Steph.
He told her: "You fall in love in a slightly weird place and have a connection with people. It's good to take that home with you. It makes you strong. It's something you'll never do again. We are on Celebrity Big Brother. We will look back on this and I'll think I fell in love on TV with a bird."
His confession fuelled fan's wish for Sam to enter the CBB house. Rumours have been circulating that Stephanie's beau could be confronting her on TV, but a rep for Celebrity Big Brother has since denied the claims.
They said any reports of Sam unexpectedly entering the house are simply "untrue."
