  Whoopi Goldberg says she is 'working diligently' to make Sister Act Whoopi Goldberg appeared on The Late Late Show With James Corden on Tuesday night as she revealed that she is definitely interested in doing Sister Act 3.

When Joe Simmonds plonks himself down next to his brother Sam for this interview wearing his Manchester United shirt you get the feeling it is mostly to annoy his sibling.

Liverpool fan Sam, who, at 25, is two years older than Joe, spent most of his childhood trying to stick his brother back in his box.

Talking about the European Cup final can wait. Old scores need to be settled first.

The Sibling Kings is the title used for the joint rulers of Aerenal. They are traditionally a brother and sister of a noble house, selected by the Undying Court. When one of the siblings dies, the other gives up the throne and the Undying Court selects a new pair to rule.

‘No, he doesn’t!’ Joe cuts in before Sam resumes bashfully.

‘I kneed him in the leg so hard...’

‘In front of everyone in the lunch queue!’ Joe cries with dismay.

‘...in front of a lot of people,’ agrees Sam. ‘To put him back in line. As soon as I did it I felt bad — he couldn’t walk! He was almost crying. I regret it. It wasn’t very nice but at the time I thought, “he’s having it”. I think it was a classic case of...’

‘Sam showing off in front of everyone?’ Joe interjects.

‘No, no. Joe was trying to show me up in front of my friends. I thought I’d give him a lesson.’

Joe was no saint, mind. ‘One time we played football and I slapped him in the face,’ he smiles mischievously. ‘The next minute he’s on top of me making me eat grass! We were competitive, weren’t we? We both loved sport.’

However, if one has siblings the latter are usually available twenty-four hours a day, every day. Furthermore, a child often prefers to talk to someone closer his age as he reaches adolescence. And friends cannot replace the camaraderie among siblingsd who grow up together under the same roof.

‘Both wanted to be the best,’ adds Sam. ‘Weekends were football for Broadmeadow STFC and rugby for Teignmouth RFC, if we could do both. They were both on Sundays so I would play rugby in the morning, 40 minutes, and then Dad took me to play football with a 1pm kick-off. I had a couple of seasons up top in football and was quite prolific.’

‘He’s terrible!’ Joe exclaims, trying to set the record straight.

‘Then I slowly moved back to playing centre back at 14,’ Sam explains. ‘Playing together now probably gives us an edge. When we were younger we wanted to be better than each other but now it’s doing well for the club.’

‘We want each other to be better now,’ confirms Joe. Together the Teignmouth tyros are making waves. Sam the No 8 and Joe the Exeter captain and fly-half will run out today at Ashton Gate against Racing 92 in the Champions Cup final bursting with Devon pride.

The Simmonds brothers are quickly becoming the town’s most famous sons. Maybe sealing the Premiership and European Cup double would put them above three members of rock band Muse and Charles Babbage, the 19th century polymath seen by many as the ‘father of the computer’, on the ‘notable people’ section of Teignmouth’s Wikipedia page.

It was not long ago they finally left home. Both lived with their mother Nicola on the coast until last year. Now, on separate sides of Exeter, it is easier to get along.

‘It’s lovely!’ Joe jokes. ‘Sam was 24 and still living at home! Mum wanted to get rid of us. I left about a year and a half ago when I was 22.’

‘It was tough living together,’ Sam picks up. ‘We would drive in to the club together but not speak much. I think our relationship is better now — we don’t argue nearly as much.’

Ahead of the most significant fortnight in Exeter’s history, with the two trophies on the line on consecutive Saturdays, it would be understandable if these local Chiefs felt the pressure.

The fox had forced itself into a crevice to try to stop its siblings getting at the meal. "The judges particularly liked it because only a really keen young naturalist would have been able to get such a picture," explained Roz Kidmand-Cox. "The composition is wonderful.

When the European Cup started in 1996, the year Joe was born, the club was in Courage League Division 4 playing Clifton, Redruth, Havant and Aspatria.

Fourteen years and four promotions later the brothers were there to watch Exeter seal a fifth leap, up to the Premiership after a play-off victory over Bristol in 2010.

‘We watched a lot of Exeter playing in the Championship,’ Joe explains. ‘Looking back I wouldn’t have thought I’d be playing in these big games. It’s a credit to the coaches and who they’ve brought in but also the culture of the club. We’re all like a family.’

A largely homegrown one too. The team that beat Toulouse in the semi-final included eight starters from Devon and Cornwall. But having suffered the heart-ache of losing three league finals to a Saracens side they feel cheated them out of titles, these Chiefs are no wide-eyed wanderers any more.

‘A couple of years ago it would have been a dream to just make the final,’ says Sam. ‘But I think I speak for everyone that the dream is to win the European Cup and the Premiership. If you’re just happy to get to finals you’re doing something wrong. That hurt from losing Premiership finals has stuck with us. We’re a better team now, have moved on and everything is driving towards winning.

‘Before rewards came playing for a loan club in the Championship or National One, or playing for Exeter in LV Cup games, now it’s European Cup finals, Premiership finals. It’s what dreams are made of, I guess, but the bigger dream is winning it.’

And now the pair have stopped their sibling scraps they are able to talk openly about their love for each other and joy to be doing this together. Sam is up for European Player of the Year, having missed most of the previous season with a horrendous knee injury, and Joe is desperate for him to win it.

‘He deserves it,’ Joe adds. ‘He’s the best player I’ve seen play. It’s a testament to him. He was in a bad way with his injury a year or so ago but he’s probably playing the best rugby he’s ever played now. I’m glad I’m not playing against him.’

Sam returns the compliment. ‘I was very proud of the first time we took the pitch together,’ he says. ‘To be able to play with a sibling is the best feeling. Although you’ve got mates and team-mates around, the feeling of playing with someone with the same blood is just amazing.

‘I’m very proud of him leading out Exeter. It’s nuts. Hopefully he can lift two cups for us this year.’
