Photoshopped pictures of the Labour Party leader Ed Miliband have been widely shared in the UK, as the politician gained fans from around the world.

The hashtag #milifandom has been used more than 28,000 times in the past 24 hours. A counter-surge by Conservative supporters, #cameronettes, attracted around 8,000 tweets.

BBC Trending has been looking at some of the best #Milifandom images, and we've also been studying the other treatments given to different party leaders over the first few weeks of the General Election campaign.
