In a poll by LastBroadcast to find fans' favourites, three out of the top five were gay.
Lesbian twin Emily, portrayed by Kathryn Prescott, topped the poll, with the in-denial Naomi (Lily Loveless) close behind in third place.
The final gay character to make the top five was Mitch Hewer's Maxxie, who left the show in 2008 when the cast was axed to make way for the newcomers.
Completing the most popular characters were Chris (Joe Dempsie) at number two, and Hannah Murray's Cassie, who took fifth place.
Skins returns for its fourth series Thursday, January 28 on E4.
