Sometimes they regress if there has been a change to their routine. Has there been anything that could have upset him?
Try going back to basic training, rewarding!

Has anything changed outside your home - a new dog next door for example? I've no idea whether it's the same with dogs, but I know that the dominant cat in an area will leave it's poo in a prominant position to show his supremacy :?

Have you tried to take him for a short walk in the evening to stimulate an evacuation before bed?

Try feeding him at a different time. If he's getting caught out it could just be the amount of time between eating and needing to go.

Best of luck

My 7 month puppy started doing this again, although he sleeps in a cage. I was told to change the time I feed him and not as much on an evening. About four o'clock was suggested. I did this and he stopped.
My older dog wee'd in the house, a couple of times, I couldn't believe it. I was told by my breeder it could be a territory thing. They were right because as soon as he was neutered he stopped.
So all the suggestions given to you worked for me- Hope they do for you!
