@Vcw56 see help here https://community.o2.co.uk/t5/How-to-Guides/Accidental-MMS-Sending-and-How-to-Avoid-it/ba-p/1014132

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

A sms usually converts to mms after 480 characters. An emoji or emoticon is usually around 100 characters for the first one and then around 2 characters for each subsequent one  A space counts as one character 

On android there is a setting in messages that you can tick to warn you when a text converts to mms.
